Description

The Boston Red Sox team of 1912 poses for a group portrait. The Red Sox defeated the New York Giants to win the World Series that year. The team is arranged in front of their dugout along the first base line, with a view of the grandstands in the background. There are three insets: a ballboy, manager-first baseman Jake Stahl, and pinch hitter Clyde Engle. In the bottom of the tenth inning of the deciding game with the Giants ahead by one, Engle hit a routine fly ball, but Giants center fielder Fred Snodgrass muffed the play. Engle scored the tying run, leading the way to a Red Sox victory.
