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.
In the first postseason game ever played at Yankee Stadium, veteran Giants outfielder Casey Stengel becomes the first player to hit a World Series homer in the Bronx ballpark, breaking a 4-4 deadlock in the top of the ninth inning with an inside-the-park round-tripper off Joe Bush. The Game 1 matchup is the first Fall Classic contest to be broadcast nationally.
