Charlie Ganzel from the Chronology
Sep 21, 1897 - Second place Boston plays two against visiting Brooklyn and “the difference between the first and second was as that between hunks of Ashland coke and the diamonds on Harry Von der Horst’s shirt front” (Boston Globe). Things start poorly for Kid Nichols when batterymate Charlie Ganzel drops two foul flies hit by leadoff batter Fielder Jones. Jones walks to start a 12-run first inning against Nichols, which sets a record for most runs surrendered in an inning by a pitcher. Brooklyn racks up another 5 runs in the fourth inning to finally knock out the Kid as they go on to win, 22–5. Boston reverses the loss in game two, winning, 9–1.
Apr 26, 1890 - Boston catcher Charlie Ganzel tags out two runners at home to complete a triple play in a 3-1 loss to the NL New Yorkers.
Oct 15, 1887 - After the Browns won yesterday in Brooklyn 5-2 Detroit bounces back in New York today with a 9-0 win. Charlie Getzien takes a no-hitter (not counting walks) into the 9th inning but settles for a 3-hit game. Charlie Ganzel playing 1B in place of the injured Dan Brouthers leads with 4 hits. Brouthers is out for the series with a sprained ankle.
