Truck Hannah from the Chronology
May 19, 1940 - At Memphis 53-year-old manager Truck Hannah catches a doubleheader win over Nashville. Truck is forced to play because of injuries to his two catchers.
May 31, 1920 - At the Polo Grounds the Yankees outslug Washington winning 7-6 in the morning game and 10-7 in the afternoon match. New York wins the opener with three runs in the 9th to pin the loss on reliever Al Schacht. George Mogridge is the winner. New York scores 5 in the 6th when Duff Lewis and Truck Hannah hit back-to-back homers and the Yanks get a single and two triples to knock out Shaw. In the afternoon game before 38000 fans Walter Johnson pitches 4 2/3 innings of ineffective relief for the Nats and gives up a tremendous HR by Ruth in the 8th that hits the facade on the upper deck in right field. A bright spot for Washington is Braggo Roth who swipes four bases including 2B and 3B in the 4th inning then swiping home on the front end of a double steal: Braggo will swipe another 4 on June 12. Peckinpaugh has four hits in game 2 including a pair of doubles and a triple.
