Today’s Random Player From The Baseball Project That May Or May Not Amount To Anything is Dickie Kerr. Kerr was a rookie in 1919 when he was called on to start Game 3 of the World Series. Despite his teammates’ apparent lack of effort, Kerr threw a complete game shutout. In Game 6 he pitched another complete game, going the full ten innings for the Sox second win. After the Series was over, Kerr remarked, “Our outfielders fielded base hits slow, allowing the Reds to take extra bases. And, there were times when the fielders played the Reds just opposite of what they were supposed to do. In that way they left gaps for the ball to fall safely.” Boy did he not realize what he was on to.
