1910 Season

As the 1910 season got underway there were some worries from the league and clubs that fan ticket sales during preseason were down on the last few years. Ticket sales were showing a drop of around 10% and some clubs were wondering if they could survive with this drop in numbers due to the salaries being paid to the top earners. Other than this the play on the field and the team names remained static as the league tried to fight off the impending financial dip.

Fred Clarke of the Pittsburgh Pirates may be in the twilight of his career but he can still hit a ball with the best. The 14th of May saw him collect hit number 2500 for his career.

It has been a long time coming but Jack Chesbro of the Cincinnati Reds finally broke through the 200 win barrier on the 31st of May.

Bobby Wallace of the St. Louis Cardinals continues to help propel his team forward as he collected hit number 2000 on the 5th of July

Eddie Plank of the Philadelphia Athletics has spent 10 years playing ball for them. The 16th of July saw him collect win number 200 for the Athletics.

The 2nd of August was a good day for St. Louis Cardinals Closer, Al Carson. He came into the game with his side only just up and managed to finish it off to pick up save number 9 of the year. This broke the league record for saves in a season held by Sam Leever and the fans were wondering how far he could push that total before season's end.

Slim Sallee has only been in the league for 3 years but he had the best day of his career on the 15th of August. He managed to claim a strong no hitter that saw only 5 walks against him over the 9 innings pitched.

While it was late in the season and the Pittsburgh Pirates were out of the pennant race, it did not stop Honus Wagner looking to increase his hit count. The 2nd of October saw him bring up number 2500 for his career.

In Season Transactions
July
Chicago Cubs swap Pitcher Mike Cunningham and 3B Alex McCarthy with Pittsburgh Pirates SS Tommy McMillan and C William Tenney.
Detroit Tigers swap Pitcher M Smith and C John P Henry with Chicago Cubs 2B Morten Clark.

Even though the crowds were down over the season, the league had probably its most contested pennant races for years. Both the American League and National League were still undecided going into October with 3 teams in the hunt in both Leagues. In the end the National League was the first to be won as the Boston Doves finally got over the line on the 4th of October. They beat the Cincinnati Reds by 5 games to take the title. In the American League it took slightly longer with the Philadelphia Athletics having to wait until the 6th of October before their pennant was confirmed. They ended up winning the American League by 3 games from the Washington Senators.

Hitting was up in the leagues this year as the batter seemed to find a slightly improved range and desire to do well. In the National League Ty Cobb of the Boston Doves took another batting title with a magnificent .400 batting average. He also took the home run title with 10 long balls over the season. He missed out on the triple crown by failing to win the RBI chase as team mate Birdie Cree took the title on 103. Noodles Hahn of the Cincinnati Reds topped the NL ERA charts for the year as he kept his down to 1.55 over the season. Walter Johnson of the St. Louis Cardinals had the most wins on 27 while his 248 strikeouts proved to be the league best for the year.

In the AL the batting crown went to Tris Speaker of the Chicago White Sox. He had a batting average of .341 to be top batter over the year. Frank Schulte of the Cleveland Naps had the most long balls as his 10 home runs so him help lead the leagues power hitters. Sherry McGee of the Chicago White Sox had the most RBI's with 93 over the AL season. Russ Ford of the Washington Senators posted the best ERA in the AL over the season as he had only a 1.49 figure. Jack Coombes of the New York Yankees took home 26 wins for his team over the course of the season. Ed Walsh of the St. Louis Browns was streets ahead in the strikeout count with 242 over the season.

Al Carson of the St. Louis Cardinals finished the season with 15 Saves to set a new league season record. Ty Cobb of the Boston Doves set a new Caught stealing season record of 64 over the year.

1911 Season

The 1911 season starts with the league still looking to try and raise the fan interest after last season's dip. There has been an increase in ticket sales before the season but it has yet to reach the levels seen in 1909. On the field 2 teams have had a name change and the play continues to go from strength to strength.

The first player accomplishment did not come until the 17th of June when Sam Crawford of the Cincinnati Reds picked up hit number 2000 of his career.

Doc White of the Cleveland Naps had to wait a while but he finally managed to get to number 200 in the win column on the 24th of August.

In a strange occurrence, Smokey Joe Wood recorded a game where he pitched a no hitter but still allowed the opposition to score in his 2-1 win. The score came thanks to 2 errors from his teammates.

The 4th of September was a big day for the St. Louis Cardinals closer, Johnny Lush. This was the day he managed to close out game number 16 of the year and break the League record for Saves in a single season. He finished the year with 17. Two better than Al Carson who's 15 only happened the season before.

Jake Daubert of the Washington Senators was looking good through most of August and into September as his hitting streak just seemed to keep going. In the end it took a good showing from the Boston Red Sox to stop him at 37. Many fans were disappointed as this stopped a possible run at Nap Lajoie's 50 game hitting streak record.

In season transactions.

July
New York Giants swap RF Danny Murphy with Cleveland Naps 2B Miller Huggins.
Washington Senators swap 3B George Perring with Boston Rustlers 2B Dave Shean.
Boston Red Sox swap LF Joe F Connolly and 3B Art Phelan with New York Highlanders CF Roy Hartzell.
Philadelphia Athletics swap 3B Frank LaPorte with Washington Senators Pitcher Jake Northrop and 3B Red Corriden.
Detroit Tigers swap Pitcher Benjamin Henderson with Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Clarence Kraft and Pitcher Gene Packard.

The season saw one league closer than the other again as the National League provided more entertainment than the American League. The American League was won by the Washington Senators to take their first AL pennant. This was never in doubt as they held a 6 game lead from the start of July and then just slowly stretched it until they took the pennant in late September. The Washington Senators closest rivals were the Cleveland Naps who finished 10 games behind. In the National League the Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals slugged it out all the way to early October before the Reds were confirmed as pennant winners. The NL finished with the Reds beating the Cardinals by 5 games to take their first NL pennant. With 2 new pennant winners the MLB was looking at a new Championship Series winner from the play offs.

The top hitter over the season was the St. Louis Cardinals Shoeless Joe Jackson. Jackson hit for an average of .417 over the year to take the NL batting crown with ease. Ty Cobb of the Boston Rustlers and Gavvy Cravath of the Brooklyn Dodgers shared the NL home run crown with 13 each. Birdie Cree of the Boston Rustlers won another RBI crown in the NL with 107 over the season. The batting averages in the AL were lower than the NL with Frank Baker of the Cleveland Naps taking the batting crown. He had an average of .374 over the season. Fred Lauders of the Detroit Tigers won the home run chase in the AL with 13 long balls. Heinie Zimmerman of the Cleveland Naps had the most RBI's in the AL with 107.

Jim Scott of the Washington Senators led the MLB's ERA lists this year as he had a 1.97 ERA to be the AL's top pitcher. His teammate Russ Ford took home the most wins on 25 along side Doc White of the Cleveland Naps. Ed Walsh of the St. Louis Browns continues to hurt opponents batting averages with his strikeout count for the year of 195. Noodles Hahn of the Cincinnati Reds had the best ERA in the NL on 2.11. Teammate Ted Brown took the most wins in the NL with 24. Walter Johnson of the St. Louis Cardinals was top strikeout pitcher for the year with 275.

John Henry Lloyd finished the year with a record he would prefer not to have as he broke the single season record for most strikeouts. He finished with 147 over the 1911 season.

Game 1 saw the Washington Senators break a lot of Cincinnati Reds fans hearts as they blew the home team away 10-1. This gave them a 1-0 series lead. Russ Ford was excellent on the mound, going the full 9 innings for 2 hits and 1 run only.

The Cincinnati Reds roared back into the series as they gave their fans fresh hope by beating the Washington Senators 3-0. Eddie Stack pitched 9 excellent innings to record a 7 hit shut out.

Game 3 saw the teams play out a hard fought 10 inning thriller in Washington. In the end the Senators had just enough to retake the Series lead after a 3-2 victory. Ed Karger was the star of the show. He pitched 8.1 strong innings for 6 hits and 2 runs. He also slammed a crucial game tying homer in the bottom of the 8th to keep the Senators in the game.

A high scoring game saw the Washington Senators stretch their series lead to 3-1 after they triumphed 8-7 at home in game 4 after 12 tense innings. John Wilson of the Washington Senators had a strong day at the plate, going 3-5 with a run and 2 RBI's.

John Wilson saw his Washington Senators home in game 5 as another strong performance saw the team win 11-4 and take the MLB Championship Series. Wilson went 2-2 with 4 runs and 2 RBI's along with 2 walks. He cracked 2 home runs early in the game as the Senators opened up an early lead. Stuffy McInnis of the Reds tried to rally the team with a home run in the 7th but it was to little to late for the team from Cincinnati.

Player of the Series was John Wilson of the Washington Senators.

In the end only 1 player stood out and the committee was unanimous in their vote to induct him. The player to make the grade and join the hall of fame was pitcher Rube Waddell.

1912 Season

No matter how much work the league did it just didn't seem to be able to get the crowds to come back to baseball. The pre season ticket sales were down again for 1912 as the league continued to struggle at the gates. The product on the park was good but the fans just were not turning up.

The 7th of May was a big game for Bill Hogg of the Chicago White Sox. He pitched a masterful game to hold the Washington Senators hitless in an 8-0 win. He had 5 walks and a team error during the outing.

Walter Johnson of the St. Louis Cardinals is one of the best pitchers in the league right now. The 18th of May allowed him to show exactly how special as he led his team to a 1-0 win with no hits from the opposition batters. He gave up only 3 walks that stopped it being perfect.

Noodles Hahn of the Cincinnati Reds has been at the top of professional baseball for a long time now. The 20th of May was a big day in his career as he picked up win number 300 to join a very exclusive club with only 7 other pitchers.

Charles Bender of the Boston Braves racked up win number 200 of his career on the 29th of June.

It took a while but Nap Lajoie of the Philadelphia Athletics proved he is still one of the best with a bat. He collected hit number 3000 on the 15th of July.

The 19th of July proved to be disappointing for Cleveland Naps fans and the teams 2B Fred Baker. He made it all the way to 38 games with a hit before he saw his streak ended by the New York Highlanders. Nap Lajoie can breath easy again as his 50 game record remains intact.

Christy Mathewson started his career when the MLB was inaugurated in 1901. He is still going strong 12 years later as the New York Giants pitcher picked up win number 250 of his career on the 23rd of August.

In season transactions.

April
New York Highlanders swap SS Heinie Wagner with Brooklyn Dodgers 1B Art Griggs.

July
Philadelphia Phillies swap Pitcher Roy Patterson and CF Ted Cather with Cleveland Naps 3B Albert Bromwich.
Washington Senators swap C William Harris with C Lew McCarty and 2B Frank Prucha.
Cincinnati Reds swap 2B John Hummell with St. Louis Browns Pitcher Chappie McFarland.
Washington Senators swap 3B Terry Turner and CF Al Wickland with Brooklyn Dodgers 2B Eusebio Gonzalez and Pitcher Phil Douglas.

It was an interesting season that saw the centre of baseball move to St. Louis. In the American League the St. Louis Browns were the best team. The broke to the front in early July and then never looked back as they continued to keep the rest of the league at bay. They ended up winning the American League pennant by 7 games from the Cleveland Naps. In the National League the pennant was a much closer affair. The St. Louis Cardinals had pushed out to a 6 game lead by the start of August but were hauled back in by the Boston Braves. It got to the point in late September where the teams were level on wins with only a few games left. In the end the Cardinals had a final push to get over the line in October by 2 games over the Boston Braves.

Ty Cobb of the Boston Braves was the star of the National League batting stars again. He put together an excellent season to end with a league leading .432 batting average. Beals Becker of the New York Giants and Harry Hooper of the Brooklyn Dodgers took the home run chase in the National League as they hit 11 long balls each over the season. Eddie Collins Sr. of the St. Louis Cardinals drove home the most runs in the National League with 110 RBI's over the season. Frank Baker of the Cleveland Naps used his 38 game hit streak to take the American League batting crown. He finished the year on a batting average of .397. He also took home the American League home run chase as he hit a league high 15 out of the park. John Wilson of the Washington Senators was the only player to stop Baker taking home a triple crown as he took the RBI title in the American League with 100.

Walter Johnson of the St. Louis Cardinals was the pitcher every National League batter hated to face. He had the best ERA in the whole of baseball with 2.02 being his mark. He also had the most wins over the season with 26 to his name. Smokey Joe Wood of the New York Giants was the only pitcher to manage to stop Walter Johnson getting a triple crown. Wood took 273 strikeout victims to beat Johnson by 24. Ed Walsh of the St. Louis Browns was another player who got close to a triple crown. He led the American League in wins with 28. He also took the most strikeouts with 214 over the year. Only Dutch Leonard of the Chicago White Sox dented the triple crown attempt as his ERA of 2.09 was better than Ed Walsh's 2.34.

Game 1 saw the St. Louis Browns take an early lead in the Championship Series as they made home advantage pay. They beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 with Ed Walsh getting the win for 9 solid innings of work.

The St. Louis Browns made it 2 in a row as they beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-2 in Game 2 of the Series. Ray Caldwell pitched an excellent game to get the win with 8 hits over 9 innings.

The St. Louis Cardinals were happy to be back on home soil for game 3 of the Championship Series as they took the win 3-1. This allowed them to cut the St. Louis Browns lead back to 1 game. Frank Arellanes had a strong game on the mound as he went 9 innings for 6 hits and 1 run.

Game 4 saw the St. Louis Cardinals batting break free as they beat the St. Louis Browns 10-2. Eddie Collins Sr. continued his excellent form in the series with a 4-4 day along with 3 RBI's, 2 runs and a walk. Walter Johnson picked up the win.

Going into game 5 the Series was tied at 2 apiece but the St. Louis Browns finally managed to break the home team strangle hold and won at Robinson Field by a score of 8-2. Ray Caldwell was on top of the Cardinals batting all day as he had 9 strong innings of 11 hit ball.

There is no better way to win your 4th MLB Championship Series than to grind your cross town rivals into the dirt. That is exactly what the St. Louis Browns did in game 6 of the Series as they won 10-0 and pick up their 4th Championship in 8 years. Hank Robinson was on top form as his 9 inning, 4 hit, no run game saw his side light up the fans faces with the win.

Eddie Collins Sr. of the St. Louis Cardinals was the MVP of the Series in his teams losing cause. He went 15-20 over the 6 games and had 5 RBI's with 4 runs.
