10/3/1917 – In the first game of a double header at Philadelphia, Art Fletcher of the Giants, who was sixth in the batting order doubled in the top of the second (or possibly in the top of the fifth according to a second newspaper) when Dave Robertson should have hit. The hit was negated, but Fletcher managed to double twice in the game even without the one that was nullified. Perhaps due to the improper at bat, the box score for the game is not correct as it shows Fletcher with 6 AB, one too many, and the lead off hitter, George Burns with one too few.
