Old timey ball players... ineffective pitchers... passing sea birds... eventually, death’s icy touch is felt on each of our shoulders. On this episode of The Dirty Inning, Justin and Trev go back to 1915--the LAST time the Phillies started 4-0--and discuss the loss that ended the team’s early eight-game win streak. Along the way, they’ll learn just how many players in that game felt the unwavering fear of what one baseball writer referred to as being called out “by the great umpire in the sky.”*
