    "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)

        --------------------------The Philadelphia Athletics' $100,000. Infield

        THE $100,000 INFIELD PLUS ONE | When Collins became a regular in 1909, Danny Murphy became the odd man out and was bumped to right field. This infield was together for four years and their total batting average was .319. Murphy, exiled to the outfield, hit .323 over the same period.

        1914: L-R: Stuffy McInnis (1B), Danny Murphy (RF), Frank Baker (3B), Jack Barry (SS), Eddie Collins (2B)-------------------Chief Bender, Phil. A's P, October 6, 1914

              Addie Joss' Death Benefit Game, Monday, July 24, 1911. Cleveland pitcher Addie Joss died of tubercular meningitis, an inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain, April 14, 1911. Charles Somers, the owner of the Cleveland team, wanted to put together a benefit game for the Joss family. So, the AL scheduled a benefit game for his widow, Lillian. It was played between an AL all-star team and Cleveland. The game raised $12,914.60 for Lillian Joss, as a crowd of 15,281 saw the AL All-Stars win, 5-3. Clyde Milan replaced Speaker in CF midway through the game, and Walter Johnson blanked the Naps on 1 hit in 3 innings in relief of Wood, who relieved Russ Ford. The Cleveland team featured Nap Lajoie, Joe Jackson, and Cy Young.

              AL All-Stars, Standing, L-R; Bobby Wallace (SS), Frank Baker (3B), Joe Wood (P), Walter Johnson (P), Hal Chase (1B), Clyde Milan (CF), Russell Ford (P), Eddie Collins (2B).

              Seated, L-R; Germany Schaeffer (1B), Tris Speaker (CF), Sam Crawford (RF), Jimmy McAleer (Mgr.), Ty Cobb (Cleveland uniform) (OF), Gabby Street (C), Paddy Livingston (C).

                                "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)
