Al Wingo from the Chronology
Sep 24, 1928 -
The Tigers draw 404 fans for their last meeting with the last place Red Sox winning 8-0 behind Sam Gibson's 5-hitter. Pat Simmons is knocked out in the 7th when he gives up consecutive triples to Al Wingo batting 9th John Stone and Charlie Gehringer. Harry Heilmann has a HR and double for Detroit. Jack Rothrock is busy for Boston playing LF SS and pitching a shutout last inning. On September 29 Rothrock will catch an inning against the Indians before moving to left field to replace pitcher Danny MacFayden. With that move Rothrock plays all 9 positions this year plus pinch hitting and pinch running.
