    I’ve heard a story about something that happened in the bottom of the ninth inning. Goose Goslin hit what would appear to be a home run that would win the game for the Senators, but it hit the top of the fence and bounced back into play. Goose was able to score as the outfilder had to run down the ball to relay it back to the catcher. The throw was high and the catcher had to reach way up to get the ball. Still the upm called Goose out. Fans were on the field going crazy that their team had apparently won, when all of a sudden there was a near riot when the ump called Goose out. It appears he failed to touch First base when rounding it. His team did go on to win in the 12th inning. Is this a true story? I’ve exhausted all my leads as to how to find out.

    It didn’t happen in Game 7 of the 1924 World Series. Here is the bottom of the ninth play-by-play from retrosheet:

    SENATORS 9TH: Goslin grounded out (second to first); Judge
    singled to center; Bluege reached on an error by Jackson (assist
    by Kelly) [Judge to third, Bluege to first]; MCQUILLAN REPLACED
    NEHF (PITCHING); Miller grounded into a double play (shortstop
    to second to first) [Bluege out at second]; 0 R, 1 H, 1 E, 1
    LOB. Giants 3, Senators 3.

    Nothing like that seems to have happened in the rest of the series either.
