Pittsburgh Press, May 11, 1912:
That famous “Eea-yah!” shriek, that eccentric dance with one hoof hoisted high into the air with both arms stretched, that echoing whistle and many other maneuvers made famous by Hughey Jennings will be heard and seen no more inside the ball orchard.
That auto accident of last winter had wrecked the health of Jennings, and instead of performing like a raving maniac on the coaching lines, as he did for five years, the brainy little Tiger leader is forced to change his habits around first and third base. Jennings is through with the noisy stuff. Not because he has tired of screeching, whistling and dancing; but his strength will not stand the strain.
At present Hughey is on the verge of a physical collapse.
Eh, no big deal. As long as nothing crazy or stressful happens this season, Jennings can just coast through the year and spend the offseason recovering.
And nothing crazy or stressful happened to the Tigers in 1912, right?
