New York Evening World, October 16, 1912:
RED SOX WIN TITLE IN 10TH
Snodgrass‘s Muff of Engle‘s Fly Causes Defeat of McGraw‘s Men After Hair-Raising Battle
The Red Sox won the world’s championship from the Giants this afternoon in an extra inning game by a score of 3 to 2. A most wretched exhibition of fielding on the part of the Giants was responsible for the defeat. Mathewson pitched superb ball and should have had a shut out, but his team mates went to pieces in the last half of the tenth.
The fans of Boston practically boycotted the Red Sox, and the deciding game of the world’s series in point of attendance was the most complete frost in the history of baseball. Fifteen minutes before play began there were no more than 300 spectators in the big grandstand, and 90 per cent of those were from New York.
Good job, Snodgrass. Good effort.
