FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»April 12, 1911:
Before the start of the opener in Philadelphia, 2B Eddie Collins, the best player on the champion A's, is presented with a new automobile. Jumbo Vaughn and the A's Chief Bender then display tough pitching, each allowing a run apiece through seven innings, but Jack Barry's error in the 8th allows Otis Johnson to score the winning run for the Yankees. Hippo Vaughn allows four hits in the 2–1 victory.
