      Captain looks out of the base line there, so that should have been a DP, but that’s the way those games were back then – not for the faint of heart.

      That was from this game in a very big 4th inning: http://www.baseball-reference.com/boxes/BOS/BOS197806200.shtml

      Three and a half months before another Yankee SS would take Mike Torrez into the net at Fenway, Fred “Bleepin’” Stanley would hit one almost as important to the Yankees pennant chase.

      @ 77yankees:
      Ah, the old days, where, if you could still supposedly reach the base with a hand, you could take a shot at breaking up the DP…

      Such a different game nowadays. People’ll come up swinging if you try that, when before it was just part of the game.
