1901 – Giants fractious owner Andrew Freedman accuses umpire Billy Nash of incompetence and bars him from the Polo Grounds. The Pirates’ Chief Zimmer and the Giants’ John Warner are forced to officiate. Christy Mathewson then wins his 7th straight, 2 – 1, but his scoreless streak stops at 39 innings when the Bucs score an unearned run in the 9th.
1904 – Boston Americans SS Bill O’Neill puts himself in the record books by committing six errors in a 13-inning, 5 – 3 loss to the Browns. O’Neill makes errors in the 1st inning on the first three balls hit to him, and a fourth straight error with a misplay in the 2nd frame. His final error is on an easy grounder in the 13th inning and allows two runs to score. O’Neill is the only 20th century player to record six errors.
