On October 9, 1915, Woodrow Wilson becomes the first President to attend a World Series game. Wilson watches Game Two in Philadelphia at the Baker Bowl with 20,306 other fans and watches the Boston Red Sox defeat the Phillies. Red Sox hurler Rube Foster limits the Phillies to just three hits en route to a 2-1 victory to even the series at one game apiece. Foster was also the star at the plate going 3-4 with the only Red Sox RBI on the day.
Rookie pitcher Dickie Kerr throws a three-hit shutout as the Chicago White Sox win 3 – 0 over the Cincinnati Reds.
