On April 12, 1912, the Chicago Cubs’ famed double play combination of “Tinker to Evers to Chance” makes its final appearance together in a major league game. The triumvirate of shortstop Joe Tinker, second baseman Johnny Evers and first baseman Frank Chance are in their positions for a 3-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds. While Tinker and Evers will play together for the remainder of the season, Chance, who is the Cubs’ manager, will not play again in a Chicago uniform. In 1913, Tinker is traded to the Reds, and Chance is managing the Yankees.
