 < 1911 World Series 1913 > 

In the 1912 World Series, the Boston Red Sox beat the New York Giants four games to three (with one tie).

This dramatic series showcased great pitching from Giant Christy Mathewson and from Boston fireballer Smoky Joe Wood. Wood won two of his three starts and pitched in relief in the final game. In the deciding game, Boston rallied for two runs in the tenth inning thanks to two costly Giants fielding misplays.

Nearly all of the games were close. Four games in this Series were decided by one run. A fifth ended in a tie. A sixth was decided by two runs. Game 7 was the only one with a margin greater than three runs. Two games, including the decisive Game 8, went to extra innings. In Games 1 and 3, the losing team had the tying and winning runs on base when the game ended.

This was one of only four World Series to go to eight games, and the only best-of-seven Series to do so. While the 1912 Series was extended to eight games due to a tie game being called on account of darkness, the 1903, 1919 and 1921 World Series were all best-of-nine affairs that happened to run eight games.

Game 1

Polo Grounds crowd at Game 1

Tuesday, October 8, 1912 at Polo Grounds (IV) in New York, New York

In batting practice before Game 1, Tris Speaker hit a ball over the right field grandstand and completely out of the Polo Grounds.[10] The Series opened with the Red Sox as 10–8 betting favorites.[11] McGraw surprised everyone by pitching rookie Jeff Tesreau rather than the great Christy Mathewson against Smoky Joe Wood; the Giants' manager preferred to save Mathewson for Game 2 and the hostile crowd at Fenway Park.[12]

New York struck first. Josh Devore walked with one out in the third and advanced to third base on a single by Larry Doyle that Lewis lost in the sun.[13] After Fred Snodgrass struck out, Red Murray's single scored Devore and Doyle for a 2–0 Giants lead. Throwing a spitball[14], Tesreau held the Red Sox hitless over the first five innings. Boston cut the lead to 2–1 in the sixth on a triple by Tris Speaker that fell to the ground untouched when Snodgrass and Devore failed to call each other off the ball,[15] and an RBI groundout by Duffy Lewis. The very next inning, the Red Sox scored three runs. Boston's runs came on an RBI double by Harry Hooper and a two-run single by Steve Yerkes, after Giants second baseman Doyle muffed an inning-ending double play ball off of Wood's bat and had to settle for the out at second.[16] In the bottom of the ninth, the Giants scored a run and had the tying run on third and the winning run on second, but Smoky Joe Wood, 34–5 on the season, struck out the last two batters to earn a 4–3 Boston victory. Oddly, McGraw let relief pitcher Doc Crandall bat for himself for what turned out to be the last out rather than using backup catcher Art Wilson to pinch-hit.[17] Wood pitched a complete game, striking out eleven Giants. After the game, Wood would say, "I threw so hard I thought my arm would fly right off my body."[18]

Game 2

Christy Mathewson

Wednesday, October 9, 1912 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts

Christy Mathewson would later say of the moment when he took the mound at Fenway Park that "This was the only place in the world that I wanted to be. I could think of nothing greater than pitching this game for the glory of the New York Giants."[19]

An error by Giants shortstop Art Fletcher led to Boston scoring three unearned runs off Christy Mathewson. Single tallies in the second and fourth by the Giants cut the lead to 3–2. Another error by Fletcher, who failed to tag out Harry Hooper on a stolen base attempt, scored Boston's fourth run in the fifth inning when Yerkes followed the error with an RBI triple. In the top of the eighth, Boston returned the favor, and New York struck for three runs. Left field at Fenway Park in those days featured an incline that climbed ten feet over fifteen feet in front of the wall. Red Sox left fielder Duffy Lewis was so proficient at playing this incline that it was named "Duffy's Cliff" in his honor—but Lewis tripped on the hill and failed to catch a fly ball, and Fred Snodgrass wound up on first base.[20] Snodgrass scored on a double by Red Murray, and two batters later third baseman Buck Herzog hit a two-run double to give New York a 5–4 lead.

The Giants' lead was brief. Duffy Lewis doubled in the bottom of the 8th, and then Art Fletcher's terrible day continued, with his third error allowing Larry Gardner to reach base and Lewis to score. This tied the game 5–5. In the ninth inning, Boston relief pitcher Charley Hall, who had replaced Ray Collins in the eighth, got the first two outs but proceeded to walk Snodgrass, Larry Doyle, and Beals Becker consecutively. With the bases loaded, Red Murray grounded into a forceout and the Red Sox escaped. Boston would go quietly in the bottom of the ninth, setting up extra innings. Fred Merkle led off the Giants tenth with a triple and scored on a sacrifice fly to give the Giants a 6–5 lead. Christy Mathewson, who pitched the entire game for New York, came back to the mound in the bottom of the tenth with a chance to win the game and even the Series at one game apiece, but Tris Speaker, who hit .383 in 1912, slammed an extra-base hit to center field. Giant third baseman Buck Herzog deliberately collided with Speaker to prevent an inside-the-park home run, but Speaker got up and came home anyway.[21] Becker threw the ball in to cutoff man Tillie Shafer, who threw to the plate, but catcher Art Wilson dropped the ball—New York's fifth error of the game—and Speaker, who was credited with a triple on the play, scored to tie the game 6–6. John McGraw claimed and reporters in the press box confirmed that Speaker missed first base, but Cy Rigler ruled that he didn't.[22] Lewis followed with a double to put the winning run in scoring position, but Mathewson retired Gardner and Stahl to escape the 10th.

New York had one last chance in the top of the eleventh. Snodgrass led off the inning and was hit by a pitch. He was then thrown out attempting to steal second. After Doyle struck out, Becker drew a walk, but he was also thrown out attempting to steal second, ending the inning. After the Red Sox went down in order in the bottom of the eleventh, the game was called on account of darkness, tied 6–6. Boston retained their one game to none lead in the Series. Baseball's National Commission ruled that the players would still only get a share of the gross from the first four games, despite Game 2 being a tie, a decision which caused much discontent amongst the players.[23]

Game 3

Thursday, October 10, 1912 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts

In the top of the second, Red Murray doubled to center. He advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt by Merkle and scored on a sacrifice fly by Herzog, giving the Giants a 1–0 lead. Three innings later, Herzog doubled and scored on a single by Fletcher, stretching New York's lead to 2–0. It would stay that way until the bottom of the ninth. Rube Marquard, who pitched a complete game for the Giants, got Speaker to pop up to start the inning. Lewis, batting next, grounded to first baseman Merkle who flipped to Marquard covering first, but Marquard couldn't find the bag and Lewis was aboard with a single.[24] Gardner followed with an RBI double, making the score 2–1. First baseman (and team manager) Jake Stahl grounded to Marquard, who threw out Gardner at third base for the second out, Stahl reaching first base. Manager Stahl then took himself out of the game and replaced himself with pinch-runner Olaf Henriksen. The next Boston hitter, Heinie Wagner, reached on an error by Merkle, with Henriksen, representing the tying run, advancing to third. Wagner, the winning run, then stole second to get into scoring position. The next batter, Hick Cady, lined out to right field to end the game. Josh Devore, playing right field for the Giants, missed the ball with his glove but managed to catch it with his bare left hand.[25] New York hung on for a 2–1 victory and evened the series at one game apiece.

Game 4

Friday, October 11, 1912 at Polo Grounds (IV) in New York, New York

The Red Sox won 3–1 on a complete game, eight-strikeout effort by Wood. Boston took a 1–0 lead when Gardner tripled in the second inning and scored on a wild pitch from Tesreau, who lost the nail on the middle finger of his right (pitching) hand when a Harry Hooper grounder ripped it off in the first.[26] Boston made it 2–0 on an RBI single by Cady in the fourth. In the seventh, Herzog singled and scored on a double by Fletcher to cut the lead to 2–1, but in the top of the ninth inning Wood helped his own cause with an RBI single, and the Giants went down in order in the bottom of the ninth.

Game 5

Saturday, October 12, 1912 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts

The Red Sox scored two quick runs in the bottom of the third inning against Mathewson: Hooper led off with a triple and scored on another triple by Yerkes. The next batter, Speaker, reached on an error by Giants second baseman Doyle, allowing Yerkes to score. That would be all Boston pitcher Hugh Bedient needed. Merkle would double and come around to score in the seventh inning to make the score 2–1, but Christy Mathewson struck out to end the rally. Bedient retired the last seven Giant hitters in order to finish his three-hit complete game. Boston now led the series three games to one and was one victory away from a championship.

Game 6

Stahl advancing to third, Polo Grounds, specific game unknown

Monday, October 14, 1912 at Polo Grounds (IV) in New York, New York

Boston pitcher Buck O'Brien, who had pitched well in Game 3 but lost to Marquard, started again in Game 6 and was shelled for five runs in the bottom of the first inning. After left fielder Josh Devore led off the inning with a groundout, Doyle singled, and Snodgrass struck out, five Giants hitters in a row hit safely, with Buck Herzog scoring on a steal of home. The inning didn't end until O'Brien picked Fletcher off first base. Marquard would take over from there, throwing a complete game for his second victory of the series, the Giants winning 5–2. New York stayed alive, but Boston still led the series three games to two.

Buck O'Brien started this game over Red Sox ace Wood at the insistence of Red Sox owner Jimmy McAleer, over the protests of Boston manager Stahl. Disgruntled Red Sox players believed their own front office was trying to extend the series and gather more box office receipts by starting a weaker pitcher.[27] O'Brien, meanwhile, was not told he was pitching until the morning of the 14th, too late to prevent him from going out drinking and starting Game 6 with a hangover.[28]

Game 7

Smoky Joe Wood in 1915

Tuesday, October 15, 1912 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts

Wood, who had pitched and won Games 1 and 4 for the Red Sox, started Game 7 with a chance to win a championship for Boston. However, in a replay of Game 6, the Giants blew the game open in the first inning. Seven of the first nine Giants batters reached base, and six of them scored. Wood faced ten batters, threw them only thirteen pitches,[29], and retired only one of them, with the first out coming on a sacrifice and the third when Tesreau was caught stealing second. New York would cruise from there, winning the only truly lopsided game of the series 11–4. This game featured two "bounce" home runs, one from Gardner of the Red Sox and another from Doyle of the Giants. This type of play, where a ball lands in fair territory and goes over the wall on a bounce, was changed by rule to a ground rule double in 1930. Game 7 also featured an extremely rare unassisted double play by an outfielder. Tris Speaker, who was known for playing an extremely shallow center field, caught a liner by Fletcher with one out in the top of the ninth inning, and proceeded to step on second to double off Wilson.

The game was delayed because of a demonstration by the Royal Rooters, the primary Red Sox fan organization of the day, because their normal seats on Duffy's Cliff had been double-sold to other fans. The Royal Rooters were lined up along the left field foul line, since they did pay.[30] They were not satisfied, however. Their leader, Michael "Nuf Ced" McGreevy, led a further demonstration after the game at the Red Sox offices, and called for a boycott of Game 8.

Wood's awful start, the fact that he'd continued to pitch with a full windup instead of going to the stretch when the Giants got men on base,[31] and the sloppy play of the Red Sox led to ugly rumors. Boston fans and respected sportswriter Tim Murnane each believed that the Boston players, angry that they did not get a cut from the gate receipts for Game 2, bet on the Giants and threw the game to make their losses good.[32] However it happened, the series was tied three games apiece, setting up a decisive Game 8 for the championship.

Game 8

Wednesday, October 16, 1912 at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts

The location of this game was determined by a coin flip, which the Red Sox won. Because this game was scheduled at the last minute as a makeup due to the Game 2 tie, as well as the game-fixing rumors and the boycott by the Royal Rooters, the riveting finale of the 1912 World Series was played to a half-capacity crowd at Fenway.[33]

Mathewson pitched for the Giants, and Hugh Bedient for the Red Sox. In the Giants' third inning, Devore led off with a single and advanced on groundouts by Doyle and Snodgrass, and then scored on an RBI double by Murray. New York held on to the 1–0 lead until the bottom of the seventh inning, when Stahl singled with one out and Heinie Wagner drew a walk. Olaf Henriksen entered the game to pinch-hit for the pitcher, Bedient, and doubled to left to tie the game at one. Harry Hooper flied out to center to end the rally.

Smoky Joe Wood, who had taken a pounding the day before for Boston, replaced Bedient as pitcher. Wood and Mathewson, still pitching for the Giants, matched zeroes in the eighth and ninth innings, and the game went to extra innings tied 1–1. In the top of the tenth, Murray doubled with one out and scored on an RBI single from Merkle. Wood struck out Herzog and got the Giant catcher, Chief Meyers, to ground out to end the inning, but the game went to the bottom of the tenth with the Giants leading 2–1 and three outs away from a World Series victory.

Clyde Engle, pinch-hitting for Wood, led off with an easy fly ball to Fred Snodgrass in center field. Snodgrass dropped the ball, and Engle reached second base. The next day's New York Times described the play thusly: "And now the ball settles. It is full and fair in the pouch of the padded glove of Snodgrass. But he is too eager to toss it to Murray and it dribbles to the ground."[34] Hooper flied out to deep center—Snodgrass making a fine running catch[35] right after his error—but Engle advanced to third. Yerkes was then inexplicably walked by the control-expert Mathewson, putting the winning run on base. Tris Speaker, who hit an even .300 in the 1912 World Series, popped up foul on the first base side, but neither first baseman Merkle nor pitcher Mathewson nor catcher Meyers could get to the ball. Fred Snodgrass later claimed that the Red Sox bench jockeys disrupted the players' timing. Strangely, Mathewson called for catcher Meyers to take it, even though Merkle was closer. Meyers couldn't reach it and it fell to the ground.[36] Speaker then shouted, "Well, you just called for the wrong man, and it's gonna cost you the ball game!"[37] Given new life, he singled home Engle to tie the game 2–2, and Yerkes advanced to third base. Mathewson walked Lewis intentionally, setting up a force out at every base, but the next hitter, Larry Gardner, hit a fly ball to Devore in right field. Yerkes tagged and scored, and the Red Sox won the 1912 World Series.

Fred Snodgrass's error went down in history as "the $30,000 muff", a reference to the difference in the winner's share and loser's share, $29,514.34.[38] After the series Snodgrass tried to explain, saying "I didn't seem to be able to hold the ball. It just dropped out of the glove, and that was all there was to it."[39]

Christy Mathewson later wrote that "As I look back upon the 1912 series, when we lost to the Boston Red Sox, I see it was the same. Pitchers, outfielders, the whole team collapsed under the strain."[40] He had been ill-served by his team's defense. Five New York errors led to all six runs being unearned in the Game 2 tie, an error scored the second run in Boston's 2–1 Game 5 victory, and Snodgrass's $30,000 muff, along with the failure to catch Speaker's foul popup, resulted in the loss in Game 8. Mathewson started three games, completed all three, and compiled a 0.94 earned-run average for the Series. He got two losses and a no-decision for his efforts. The 1912 World Series was the second of three consecutive World Series appearances for the Giants, all of which they lost, and Mathewson retired in 1916 with the 1905 championship as the only one of his brilliant career.

After the Series was over, McAleer issued a statement apologizing to the Royal Rooters for selling their Game 7 seats out from under them.[41] The Red Sox's victory in 1912 marked the beginning of the most successful run in franchise history. Between 1912 and 1918 the Sox appeared in four World Series and won all of them. However, after star pitcher/outfielder Babe Ruth was sold to the Yankees following the 1919 season, Boston had to wait 27 years for its next pennant and 85 years for its next World Series victory.

The 1912 World Series was the first to be decided in the last inning of the final game. It was also the first Series where a team within one inning of losing came back to win. The next time a team that close to elimination recovered to win was the 1985 World Series, when the Kansas City Royals rallied in the bottom of the ninth to beat the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6, then won Game 7 and the championship. Other World Series that have ended with a Game 7 (or in this case, Game 8, due to the tie) going to extra innings include the Series of 1924, 1991 and 1997. Other World Series won by the home team in its last at-bat in a Game 7 include the Series of 1960, 1991, 1997, and 2001.

The 1913 Spalding's Official Baseball Guide said of the 1912 World Series that "No individual, whether player, manager, owner, critic or spectator, who went through the world's series of 1912 ever will forget it. There never was another like it. Years may elapse before there shall be a similar series and it may be that the next to come will be equally sensational, perhaps more so."[42]
