Less Self-Interested Scheduling Note

The Sox played the Indians in a day game in Cleveland yesterday. This afternoon, they played a day game against the Tigers in Detroit.

When, one wonders, was the last time Boston (or pretty much any other team) played back-to-back weekday regular season day games, let alone in two different cities on a road trip? I'm guessing Pinky Higgins had to be the manager when it happened. Or maybe Ted Williams caught the game on the radio at his air base in Korea.

Truth to tell, I wouldn't be surprised if both those guesses are way off, and the last time it happened, Lefty Grove started the second game.
