On September 13, 1946 — 1946 – The Boston Red Sox clinch the American League pennant, edging the Cleveland Indians, 1 – 0, on Ted Williams’ inside-the-park home run, the only one of his career. Williams punches the ball over the shift when LF Fat Pat Seerey pulls in behind the SS position. The Boston margin at the season’s end will be 12 games.
