Heroes of 1920 On Hand to see Tribe take Game Three

March 15, 2014 |

October 9, 1948

It was the first World Series game that triple play man Bill Wambsganss had seen since his Cleveland Indians defeated the Brooklyn Robins in Game Seven in 1920.  The grand slam man, Elmer Smith, had seen a few since, however.
