Bob Fisher from the Chronology
Jul 27, 1918 - Brooklyn takes the first of two games against last-place St. Louis winning 2-0 behind the 6-hit pitching of Dick Robertson. Mickey Doolin leads the Superbas with 3 hits and a stolen base. The nitecap is another story: Brooklyn starts rookie righthander Harry Heitmann the IL Iron man who pitched two doubleheaders at Rochester. Heitmann is stationed in Brooklyn by the Navy. The young sailor is swamped with two triples and two singles in the first 5 batters and is relieved by Burleigh Grimes. It's Heitmann's first and last ML appearance leaving him with a career ERA of 108.00. (TSN shows Heitmann with 1/3 IP while the NY Times and NY Telegram list him as retiring no batters) St. Louis tallies 26 hits in racking up a 22-7 slugfest win. Bob Fisher Gene Paulette Hornsby and McHenry each score 4 runs. Fisher collects a triple and homer while George Anderson has a double and two triples to go along with his single. Winning pitcher Bill Sherdel only lasts to the 5th but has a sacrifice fly and hits a 2-run homer over RF Jack Coombs' head. In the 7th Coombs relieves losing pitcher Burleigh Grimes and in 3 innings allows 12 hits and 10 runs.
Jul 3, 1918 - The first-place Cubs finally lose a game to the last-place Cards 2-1 in St. Louis. With the score tied Bob Fisher singles in the 8th steals 2B and 3B and scores on Charlie Grimm's single. Fisher helps again in the 9th inning when he nabs Dode Paskert at 2B with a hidden ball trick.
May 1, 1913 - Brooklyn's Casey Stengel hits two inside the park homers off Boston's Otto Hess in a 4-2 win at home. On August 16th teammate Bob Fisher will duplicate the feat against the Cardinals off Geyer and Trekell
