Charlie Jamieson from the Chronology
Aug 14, 1950 - Before 60120 the Indians turn back the Tigers 3-2 in 10 innings and reduce Detroit's 1st-place advantage to 2 1/2 games. Al Rosen had tied the game in the 9th with a 2-out HR. RF Bob Kennedy helps the Tribe's cause by starting a triple play from the outfield recalling Tribe LF Charlie Jamieson's 2 triple plays of 1928.
Jun 9, 1928 - Outfielder Charlie Jamieson starts his 2nd triple play in 3 weeks this time against the Yanks in the 2nd inning. Ben Paschal is on 3B and Lazzeri on 1st when Jamieson snags a line drive hit by Joe Dugan. Charlie's quick throw to 1B Lew Fonseca nabs Lazzeri and Paschal is out at home when he tries to score. Again Cleveland is on the losing end as New York wins 7-3.
May 23, 1928 - Cleveland left fielder Charlie Jamieson starts a triple play against the White Sox in a 4-3 loss. Today's TP occurs when Bud Clancy is out on a short fly to Jamieson who then throws out Johnny Mann the runner on third who tries to score. The relay from C Ray Sewell to his brother Joe at 2B catches Ray Schalk off base and he is tagged at 3B. Jamieson will start another triple play against the Yankees on June 9.
May 31, 1927 - Detroit 1B Johnny Neun pulls off the 2nd unassisted triple play in 2 days. It happens in the 9th against Cleveland to end the game when Neun catches Homer Summa's line drive touches Charlie Jamieson in the baseline and runs to 2B where he tags the base Glenn Myatt has vacated. Detroit wins 1-0. Rip Collins escapes with the win.
Jul 24, 1923 - At St. Louis Cleveland's Jim Joe Edwards and the Browns Ray Kolp face off for 13 innings before Charlie Jamieson's leadoff HR in the 13th decides it 3-2. Kolp faces 52 batters at one point retiring 19 straight.
Apr 21, 1922 - Detroit Tiger OF John Mohardt gets his only ML hit a single against Cleveland's Charlie Jamieson an outfielder who mops up in the Indian loss. Mohardt will play just 5 games in the major leagues but the former Notre Dame football star will play with Red Grange and the NFL Bears in 1925.
Sep 30, 1921 - In Cleveland's 3-2 win over the White Sox Chicago catcher Ray Schalk throws out 3 runners at 1B in the 8th inning for a ML record. He is the 2nd AL catcher to register 3 assists in a frame. The pickoff victims are Charlie Jamieson Joe Wood and Elmer Smith. Stan Coveleski is the winner for the Tribe.
Oct 10, 1920 - In the bottom of the first of an event-laden game Brooklyn's Burleigh Grimes gives up hits to Charlie Jamieson Bill Wambsganss and Speaker. OF Elmer Smith then hits the first grand slam in WS history jumping on a Grimes spitter in the opening inning. In the 3rd P Jim Bagby comes up with 2 on and crashes another Grimes delivery for a 3-run HR the first ever by a pitcher in WS play. Bagby is roughed for 13 hits but he gets out of jams with the aid of 3 DPs and an unassisted triple play. In the 5th with Pete Kilduff on 2B and Otto Miller on 1B relief pitcher Clarence Mitchell hits a line drive at SS Wambsganss who steps on 2B and tags the off-and-running Miller before he can retreat. Cleveland dominates 8-1.
Sep 27, 1920 - The Indians continue on their warpath by topping the Browns 8-4. Duster Mails wins his 6th straight and Tris Speaker breaks out of a slump by collecting 2 hits. He had been 1-for-19. Charlie Jamieson adds four hits.
Mar 1, 1919 - Connie Mack makes one of his biggest player mistakes trading 3B Larry Gardner OF Charlie Jamieson and P Elmer Myers to Cleveland for OF Bobby "Braggo" Roth. Vet writer Ernest Lanigan predicts that Roth will lead the circuit in homers at Shibe but Roth will be shipped on to Boston by midseason. Gardner will put in 6 more .300 years and Jamieson will be a top leadoff man and .303 hitter for the next 14 years.
Oct 4, 1916 - The New York Yankees take a pair from the visiting Washington Senators, winning 4-3 and 5-1. Yankees rightfielder Tim Hendryx has three stolen bases in game one and teammate Wally Pipp chips in with a tie-breaking two-run homer in the 8th. Urban Shocker allows just 3 hits in game 2 and the Yanks score a pair off Charlie Jamieson, an outfielder who pitches the last 4 innings. The New Yorkers bat last in both games, though they batted first in a few home games this season, the last team to do so. The rule is changed in 1950 requiring the home team to bat last.
