Cubs Trivia:

Wrigley Field hosted perhaps the greatest pitching performance ever on May 2, 1917, when both Hippo Vaughn of the Cubs and Fred Toney of the Reds threw nine-inning no-hitters. The Reds won in the 10th when Larry Kopf singled and was driven in by whom?

Just guessing based on my fascination with the Black Sox scandal many years ago, (Ergo, I'm guessing guys that should have been on the 1919 Reds and don't know if they were even on the 1917 Reds.) Hans Lobert jumps out as a name from that era.

That would be much more impressive if we didn't all know you own a copy of The Calendar. ;)
