The Americans were aided both by chants of "Tessie" from their Royal Rooters fan club and by their stronger pitching staff.The 1904 club was almost as good as the previous year's team, but due to the emergence of the New York Highlanders as a strong contender, the Americans found themselves in a tight pennant race through the last games of the season.Boston was also led by superstar pitcher Smoky Joe Wood, with whom the Red Sox beat the New York Giants 4–3–1 in the 1912 World Series that has become best known for "Snodgrass's Muff." From 1913 to 1916, the Red Sox were owned by Joseph Lannin, who signed Babe Ruth, soon to become one of the best-known and most-revered baseball players ever. the Indians, then in 1915 his first major league home run was against the Yankees, who he would ironically play for later in his career.Another 101 wins in 1915 propelled the Red Sox to the 1915 World Series, where they beat the Philadelphia Phillies four games to one.However, in the top of the ninth inning with the score tied 2–2 with a man on third in the top of the ninth, a spitball got away from Chesbro allowing Boston's Lou Criger to score the go-ahead run on one of the most famous wild pitches in history.Unfortunately the NL champion New York Giants had previously declined to play any postseason series, fearing it would give their New York rivals credibility (they had expected the Highlanders to win), but a sharp public reaction led to the two leagues immediately turning the World Series into a permanent championship, starting in 1905.His departure was more than compensated for, however, by the emergence of Babe Ruth as a star pitcher.Once again, the Red Sox won the World Series, this time defeating the Brooklyn Robins.
The 1916 team once again earned the AL pennant, though Tris Speaker was traded to the Cleveland Indians in the off-season.In game two Ruth would pitch a 14 inning complete game victory.Also third baseman Larry Gardner hit a 3-run inside-the-park home run.Ruth had just broken the single-season home run record, hitting 29 in 1919.Legend has it that Frazee did so in order to finance the Broadway play No, No, Nanette, starring "a friend", but the play did not open on Broadway until 1925.
