New York Evening World, October 9, 1912:
The Giants and Red Sox ran to a dead heat to-day. The score at the end of the eleventh inning stood New York, 6; Boston, 6. Umpire O’Laughlin then called it on account of darkness. It was really too dark for clean playing, and the judgment of the officials was backed up by the members of the National Commission.
According to the rules, governing a world’s series, the Giants and Red Sox will have to stay over here and play off the tie to-morrow.
THERE’S NO TYING IN BASEBALL!
The 1912 World’s Series had a really bizarre format, even apart from the tie game. They played Tuesday in New York, Wednesday and Thursday in Boston, Friday in New York, and Saturday in Boston.
