Babe vs Brooklyn 1916 World Series [VIDEO]
As the Red Sox and Dodgers get ready to meet in the 2018 World Series, it is interesting to note that the two franchises actually met in the Fall Classic once before.
The year - 1916.
Babe Ruth and the Red Sox beat the Brooklyn Robbins four games to one to claim the baseball championship that year.
Of course, the Robins became the Dodgers and eventually moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles.
The Sox names included Ruth, who pitched all 14 innings in a game two win. Dutch Leonard, Ernie Shore and Carl Mays were also on the team.
Lewiston's Bill Carrigan was the player/manager for the Red Sox. In fact, after the series Carrigan retired and returned to Maine to work in banking.
The Robbins had such as Casey Stengel and Jack Coombs.
The Sox home games were played at Braves Field because that park could hold more fans. So game one Sox and Dodgers at Fenway will be a first.
