On July 17, 1911 Boston Rustlers infielder Buck Herzog and OF Doc Miller fail to show up for a game and are suspended by the club. After a conference with the club president, they rejoin the team. John McGraw, anxious to retrieve former Giant Herzog to shore up a weak infield, will swap C Hank Gowdy and SS Al Bridwell to Boston for Herzog on the 21st.
