    Crazy Random Box Score

    1926, Carls Mays pitching, he and 2nd baseman have a hand in 16 assists, Mays was a sinkerballer and it looks like it was working and in one zone, with RF getting 4 of the other outs

    Of note... Cukoo Christensen in LF he was the original Ryan Freel, in RF Curt Walker, Harry Walker and Dixie Walkers daddy, Bubbles Hargrave llived in Terrace Park and took the train to the park from what I've heard.

    Mays also gets his 4th triple of the year in this contest.. which is the modern days Reds record for 3b's in a season, it's tied with Rd Lucus (who also got his 4 in 1926) 1926 is also the season that Reds got their most 3b's in team history (120) the next season they had 77 and the team slugging percentage dropped to .367 (from .400) the team moved HP up ten feet that winter and bettered that slugging percentage by one point.

    Cuckoo Christensen would be the Joe Charboneau of the '26 Reds, the next best one-hit wonder was the Kingsmen singing "Louie Louie".

    Mays, a submariner, was the guy who struck Indians shortstop Ray Chapman in the head in 1920. Chapman later died.

    Hargraves was your '26 batting champion.

    Reds were there until in the end - one of the most underrated and forgotten Reds clubs of all time.

    Carmen Hill was the SP for the Pirates. The next year 1927 he led the Pirates in wins (22) and ERA (3.24) but lost to arguably the greatest team of all time the 27' Yank in the series.

    Carmen Hill actually lived in Indianapolis and is also buried here. He was kind enough to return an autographed card in the mail I had sent him when I was a kid.

    I remember looking at this box score a ways back. Maddux and Grace were busy.

    That's Paul 'Big Poison' Waner in right field for the Pirates. His brother Lloyd 'Little Poison' Waner wouldn't join him in center field until the next season. This is the first time I realized Lloyd may have displaced Kiki Cuyler in center field, who would eventually go the the Chicago Cubs. All three are Hall of Famers, btw. The Waner brothers hold the record for most hits by a set of brothers. Even though there are only two of them, they have more hits than the 3 Alou brothers combined and the 3 DiMaggio brothers too.
    It looks like there were 4 players in this game destined for the HoF including Pie Traynor and Edd Roush.
    It never ceases to amaze me how long Americans have been enjoying this crazy game. I love to look back at some of the old games and imagine what it was like...thanks for the thread!

    It's kind of amazing that Mays had 8 assists in this one...I've always imagined him as the original Kent Tekulve with the submariner sinkerball. Oh, and Mays was on the new pre-1943 ballot for consideration for the Hall of Fame along with Bucky Walters, but neither of them got enough votes.
