Bob Unglaub from the Chronology
Jun 17, 1907 - The Red Sox sign their 4th manager this season when Deacon Jim Maguire takes over for Bob Unglaub. Unglaub's record was 9-20.
Jul 4, 1905 - In an A.M.-P.M doubleheader between Boston and Philadelphia the A's take the morning game 5-2 using pitchers Eddie Plank Coakley and Rube Waddell on the mound to beat Jesse Tannehill. The afternoon contest proves a classic as Philadelphia's Rube Waddell bests Cy Young in a 20-inning marathon when the Athletics prevail 4-2. It is an AL record that will last a year. Boston outhits the A's 15 to 13 but the 38-year-old Young loses on an error hit batsman and two hits. Young walks nobody in the 20 innings while 1B Bob Unglaub records 31 putouts. Philadelphia C Ossee Schreckengost works 28 innings in one day a ML record.
Jun 17, 1904 - In a swap greatly criticized in Boston the Boston Americans send OF Patsy Dougherty to the Highlanders for weak-hitting rookie Bob Unglaub who will play in just 6 games before being hospitalized with blood poisoning (one report says alcohol poisoning). Dougherty is not the only Patsy changing uniforms this month; For $750 the White Sox release Patsy Flaherty (1-2) to Pittsburgh where he will win 19 more games. This will be his only winning season but his feat of winning 20 games while pitching for two teams in a season will be matched only by Joe McGinnity Hank Borowy and Rick Sutcliffe.
