Oct. 20, 1946 - Boston -- Stan Musial finds himself trapped between second and third base in the first inning. Behind him is pitcher David (Boo) Ferriss, who has just thrown to third baseman Pinky Higgins for the tag. Musial had walked, stolen second as Wagner threw low into center field. Then Musial strayed too far off base and Ferriss wheeled fast to catch him flat-footed. Musial, in desperation, then broke for third. Red Sox won 4 to 0.
