On September 30, 1921 — Prior to the Braves-Giants game, the Giants Old Timers take on the Giants regulars in a 5-inning contest. Twenty thousand fans cheer as former stars Christy Mathewson, Roger Bresnahan, Hooks Wiltse, Art Devlin, Larry Doyle and Fred Tenney whip the current Giants, 2 – 0. The regular game is called because of rain after one inning, but only 4,000 fans ask for a refund.
