Fred Snodgrass


John J. McGaw says: "When Snodgrass dropped that ball in Boston—the error that everybody says cost us the series—I never gave him one word of reproach. Any player is liable to make an error. That was not a boner, as we call it. It happened to be one of those unavoidable things that come at a costly moment. Often I have been asked to tell exactly what I did to Snodgrass for that. For the first time I guess I will have to tell: I raised his salary $1,000 a year."
