    Fred Hofmann

    Fred Hofmann from the Chronology

    Jul 11, 1927 - The White Sox tie a ML record with 8 sacrifices‚ all bunts‚ against the Red Sox‚ and win 7-6. The White Sox win it in the 9th on daring base running by Bill Barrett. After stroking a 2-out single‚ Barrett steals 2B‚ and when Fred Hofmann's throw is wide‚ Bill reaches 3B‚ and continues home when Ira Flagstead fumbles the ball in CF.

    Jul 7, 1920 - Following the Yankee series in Washington‚ Babe Ruth‚ wife Helen‚ OF Frank Gleich‚ C Fred Hofmann‚ and coach Charley O'Leary drive north stopping a few times for drinks. About 3 A.M. near Wawa‚ Pennsylvania‚ Ruth takes a curve too fast and rolls the car into a ditch. Incredibly‚ no one is hurt though headlines tomorrow will proclaim: RUTH REPORTED KILLED IN CAR CRASH.
