Fred Snodgrass 1912 World Series Goat This is a photo of the first in a long line of World Series 'goats'--ballplayers who made critical blunders in the spotlight of the Fall Classic. In 1912, Fred Snodgrass of the New York Giants dropped Clyde Engel's routine fly ball in the bottom of the 10th inning of the deciding game of the World Series. The muff led to the Boston Red Sox turning a one-run deficit into a stunning 3-2 win. Sports writers called it the '$30,000 muff' because that was the difference between the winners' share of the 1912 World Series receipts and the losers' share. Despite an enormously successful real estate career in California after he retired from baseball, Snodgrass could never escape his infamous error. On April 5, 1974, the headline of Snodgrass' obituary in the New York Times read, 'Snodgrass, 86, Dead. Ballplayer Muffed 1912 Fly.'

One of those, if you make a mistake no one forgets.

One of the ironies of this game is that Snodgrass made a sensational catch later that same inning--but few baseball buffs ever mention that.

Giants' manager John McGraw actually raised Snodgrass' salary the next year.

Like Shakespeare wrote, '' the evils that men do lives after them - the good is often interred with their bones''.

Obviously William Shakespeare would have made a great baseball fan.
