    Henry Schmidt

    Henry Schmidt from the Chronology

    Aug 15, 1903 - In a doubleheader win over the Cards‚ Brooklyn pitcher Henry Schmidt steals home in game 2. Brooklyn wins 7-0 and 4-3.

    Aug 10, 1903 - Brooklyn's Henry Schmidt drops his 2nd game in 3 days to the Giants‚ this time losing 3-1 to Christy Mathewson. Matty wins his 20th and loses his shutout in the 9th on a passed ball by Jack Warner. Schmidt‚ 29‚ will win 21 games in this his only season in the Majors. A westerner‚ he will return his 1904 contract unsigned with the note‚ "I do not like living in the East and will not report."

    Aug 8, 1903 - Before a crowd of 31‚647‚ "Iron Man" Joe McGinnity pitches the 2nd of 3 doubleheaders he will win this month‚ beating Brooklyn 6-1 and 4-3; he also is credited with a steal of home in the 2nd game while Brooklyn was arguing a disputed call of Iron Joe at 3B. Brooklyn P Henry Schmidt is so upset about the steal that he throws the ball out of the park‚ a toss that gets him tossed from the game. On August 31‚ Iron Joe will beat the Phillies twice. He has now done double work 5 times‚ including 2 losses on each of the 2 occasions at Baltimore in 1901. The combination of his 434 innings pitched and 31 wins‚ with Mathewson's 366 IP and 30 wins‚ will make them the century's most productive one-season duo.

    Apr 21, 1903 - At Brooklyn's home opener at Washington Park‚ Mrs. Charles Ebbets throws out the first ball and then Henry Schmidt and the Giants' Christy Mathewson keep the ball low as a NL-record 43 total chances are taken by two clubs. The Superbas have 23 assists‚ including 8 by Schmidt; the Giants have 21. Catcher Jack Warner drives home the winning run for a 2-1 New York victory. The total chance record will be tied by the Giants and Reds‚ May 15‚ 1909.

    Apr 17, 1903 - At the Opener at the Polo Grounds‚ Brooklyn scores 4 in the first against Christy Mathewson‚ but New York counters to take a 5-4 lead. Matty allows another 5 runs as his teammates contribute six errors. Brooklyn wins‚ 9-7‚ behind rookie Henry Schmidt.
