Dave Shean from the Chronology
Sep 5, 1918 - In order to cut down on the use of trains the first 3 games of the WS are played in Chicago the next 3 in Boston. The Cubs switch their home games to Comiskey Park with its larger seating capacity. Babe Ruth having completed 13 scoreless innings in his first WS 2 years ago adds 9 more in edging Hippo Vaughn 1-0 in the opener. Also when 2B Dave Shean bats for Boston he becomes the oldest player (40 years 3 months 18 days) to play in the WS a mark other graybeards will top.
Apr 16, 1918 - The Reds' Pete Schneider in a season opener and the Red Sox' Carl Mays each pitch one-hitters.

Everett Scott drives home the winner in the bottom of the 9th off Scott Perry. The Reds top the Pirates Wilber Cooper 2-0 with Casey Stengel's single the lone Buc shot.
