On September 14, 1916 — 9/14/1916 – The Red Sox lineup had been Duffy Lewis hitting fifth, Everett Scott hitting sixth and Mike McNally seventh. However, this day, McNally was listed ahead of Scott on the lineup card presented to umpire Bill Dineen. In the top of the second inning, Scott and McNally reversed places without comment but, in the fourth frame, Lewis singled, then after Scott made an out, McNally singled to send Lewis to third base. The St. Louis Browns pointed out that McNally was out of turn and umpire Bill Dineen called McNally out.
