Fred “Snow” Snodgrass will forever be remembered as the outfielder who dropped a routine fly ball in the tenth inning of the deciding game of the 1912 World Series, helping the Red Sox win the game. People forget, however, that he was a very solid ballplayer with a good bat and glove over the course of his career. He batted .321 in 1910, .294 in 1911, and .291 in 1913 and was always considered a good team player and a credit to the game. He went on to become a successful banker, and a city councilor and then mayor of Oxnard, California, but could never live down the “Snodgrass Muff,” his infamous World Series play. A similar thing happened to another player in another era during the 1986 World Series. That man was also a very good player and a credit to the game. Both players deserve better.
