Walter Johnson Newsbeat
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
Washington Times, May 15, 1913:
Walter Smokeball Johnson is today holder of a new world’s record for holding the foe scoreless in successive innings…When Derrill Pratt pounded a single to right, scoring Gus Williams, who had already doubled to left, the onward march of the fireball flinger was at an end. He had traveled down fifty-six complete innings without allowing the enemy a run, and it will be some time before this record is bettered.
Don Drysdale’s record-breaking streak started 55 years to the day after Johnson’s streak ended.
for his generous support.
