1910 UNBA Season

 

Team Uniforms 1910.jpg

 

National League

New York boasted the largest payroll in UNBA history ($132,463) heading into the 1910 season after making multiple off-season acquisitions, including the signing of 28 year old, former Boston Brotherhood 2nd Baseman Phil Scrimshawe to the largest contract ($238,700 over 7 seasons) in professional sporting history. He is regarded as the best 2nd Baseman in the world and the best batter in the game today (1909: .385 AVG, 108 RBIs, 95 Runs). New York continued their aggressive off-season by acquiring through a trade with St Louis, Joe Timney (RF), one of the defending champion's best players in exchange for several prospects. As the 1910 season approached the New York area newspapers touted the Miltia's lineup as the greatest ever assembled.

 

After two seasons of mediocrity the Baltimore Runners came out hot to open the 1910 season, producing a 15-3 record. Young players such as the well rounded 24 yr Neil Dawson (1B) (.327 AVG, 79 RBIs, 97 Runs, 5 HRs, 18 Stolen Bases) helped the Runners on their National League title push. However, the Runners would slump in June and allow the high scoring Militia to pull ahead to a sizable lead. The Runners would make a push as the season concluded, but it would be to little to late as they would fall short by 3 games.

 

After several rough seasons the Beermen would surprise the league with one of the best pitching rotations in the UNBA, this rotation was led by Bryan Brislin (P) (20-15, 3.03 ERA, 66 Ks) and Gary Thames (P) (21-13, 2.66 ERA, 67 Ks). Brooklyn would face off against the New York Militia in several heated series. A series played at Brooklyn included several 'wild' pitches, these led to heated exchanges throughout the first two games. In the third game tensions boiled over and after being struck by a pitch that sent the crowd into a uproar, Cecil Fraser (2B) rushed the mound. Phil Scrimshawe (2B) flew forward and tackled Fraser before he reached his pitcher. As the teams had a shoving match at the mound, lineup leaders Fraser (5'3" 130lbs) and Scrimshawe (5'4" 145 lbs) rolled around on the ground flailing at each other. Both players were ejected from the game and though Brooklyn was able to pull out that specific win, they ultimately could not stop the powerhouse Militia who would pull away over the last few months of the season.

 

The Militia would wrap up their best season in the UNBA by sweeping a three game home series against the Beetles. The Militia would break all UNBA attendance records with over 3 million attending their 'baseball palace' over the course of the season. New York was a buzz as the Militia had earned the nation's rapt attention heading into the UNBA Championship Series.

United League

The Chicago Crusaders added several experienced stars to their roster during the offseason and headed into the 1910 season as United League favorites. However, as the 1910 season progressed the Crusaders continued to play mediocre ball, posting a 36-44 record through the first three months. In July they began to step up their play, but it was only enough to finish in a 3 way tie for 3rd place in the United League.

 

The Indianapolis Stripes would control their fate throughout the course of the season as they would lead the United League after the first month never relinquishing their lead throughout the season, even during a slight slump in June. The Stripes' starting lineup would comprise 5 players 25 years or younger, 2 of which were true rookies. With these young legs the Stripes employed aggressive base-running tactics and led the entire UNBA with 131 stolen bases over the course of the season. The Stripes' pitchers Roger Drewry (16-10, 3.38 ERA, 75 Ks) and Matthew Suffredini (16-9, 3.81 ERA, 65 Ks), who had proven themselves to Indianapolis as solid pitchers in previous seasons, now established themselves as one of the premier pitching rotations in baseball. The Stripes would be heading to New York for game one of the UNBA Championship Series. Youthful and confident Indianapolis would be facing off against the experienced and star studded New York Militia.

1910 UNBA Championship Series

The 1910 UNBA Championship Series would see a match-up between two relatively healthy ball-clubs, though the Indianapolis Stripes were without the help of one of their starting pitchers (broken elbow). The New York Militia were heavily favored heading into the series and expected to overpower the younger and less experienced Indianapolis Stripes. 

 

Game one, 41,277 in attendance at Queens Ballpark on a 42F day in New York. The Militia came out strong in game one scoring three runs in the first inning and adding another in the 7th. Both teams lineups were inconsistent at bat and relied on steals to get players into scoring position, while crucial hits drove in the runs. 

 

In Game two the Militia's pitcher Jason Hardeman struggled to settle in and find the strike zone in the first inning. The Stripes would capitalize, driving in 5 runs and never looking back pulling away to a 7-4 victory and evening the series at 1 game apiece.

 

Game three, 9,217 in attendance at Leonard Park on a 53F day in Indianapolis. This game would be all Stripes as they would stun the league by shutting the Militia's lineup down and scoring 7 runs of their own. The Stripes would claim a 2-1 series lead with a 7-0 victory in which they dominated the Militia in all areas of the game.

 

The Stripes were now slightly favored to win the series and one of the most loyal fan bases in baseball was rocking heading into game four.  Leonard Park was packed with 9,217 in attendance, but it's unique downtown location drove hundreds of fans to swarm onto the roofs of buildings around the stadium to view the game. These fans were not to be disappointed as Bradley Trinidad's (LF) two RBI triple in the second inning would give the Stripes a 5-0 lead. Once again the Stripes would cruise to a clear 6-1 victory shutting down the Militia and claiming a 3-1 series lead.

 

Game five, and opportunity for the Stripes to win at home in Indianapolis in front of a sold out crowd and hundreds of additional fans gathered on the rooftops. The fans were looking for another dominate Stripes' victory, but instead they witnessed a hard fought contest between the two ball-clubs. Joe Timney (RF) gave the Militia a competitive edge, reaching base 3 times, scoring 3 Runs, with a Stolen Base, and 1 RBI. The Militia would win 6-4 and bringing the series to 2-3 before returning to New York for game six.

 

Game six would be a must win for the Militia in front of their fans. Gerrit Fraley (P) would start his second game of the series allowing 4 earned runs through the first 5 innings, but after a visit to the mound from manager Roger Johnstone, Gerrit Fraley settled in and shut down the Stripes lineup securing the crucial win and evening the series at 3-3. 

 

Heading into game seven the momentum had clearly shifted to the Militia. In anticipation of a New York championship the stadium was packed with 43,125 (standing room only). The start of the game was a pitchers dual, but in the 4th inning the Militia's lineup would breakthrough with a Jason Marshall (LF) two RBI double. The Militia would control the game the rest of the way allowing only 1 run to the Stripes' 4. The Militia claimed their first UNBA championship in front of their home fans. A lasting memory of the first series is Gerrit Fraley (P), racing from the dugout just as the Phil Scrimshawe (2B) gathered in a grounder and threw to first for the final out. Gerrit tackled Jason Hardeman (P) who had just pitched the championship sealing game. The crowd's cheers were deafening as Gerrit helped Jason back to his feet, not just as a members of the Militia, but as UNBA champions.

Just following this...I must say, I really like where this series is going (With some metro areas having THREE teams right now, that makes it even more interesting).

 

When you're able, could I perhaps get a Milwaukee Kings sig, please?

1910 Awards

Drew Krull (P) would claim his 7th consecutive Most Valuable Player Award and 5th Most Valuable Pitcher Award. This would come after a season in which he led the UNBA in wins (26) and shutouts (8), but could not carry his team to the Championship Series. Phil Scrimshawe (2B) would claim the UNBA Batting and RBI titles with a .402 AVG and 133 RBIs. The 28 year old dominated the UNBA from the plate propelling the Militia to their first UNBA championship, winning his fourth championship, and claiming his first Player of the Year award. The talented youngster, Rob Shue (P) would post another polarizing season for the Boston Beetles. Shue's dominant Out Shoot and Curve pitches continued to allow him to control games as he led the National League in shutouts (5) and finished second in the wins column with 21 victories. He claims his first Pitcher of the Year award at only 21 years of age.

A Legend Retires

Gary Aiken.png

Gary Aiken (P) retired shortly into the 1910 season at 39 years of age. The 1908 season had been his last to see time from the mound during which he recorded a 4.98 ERA and a 4-18 record. After riding the pine throughout the 1909 season, Gary Aiken came to realize, after sitting the bench once again for the first several games of the 1910 season, that his time as a professional baseball player had drawn to a close.

 

During Gary Aiken's career he posted a 220-166 record with a 3.81 ERA. Early in his career (1895) he perfected the curve-ball pitch which had been recently introduced into baseball. His wicked curve combined with an effective fastball helped Gary Aiken to dominate pre-UNBA baseball (Particularly: 1895-1897). During his career he played for the Pittsburgh Panthers (4 seasons), Cleveland Grizzlies (3 seasons), Philadelphia Boomers (5 seasons), Indianapolis Stripes (1 season), and the Newark Admirals (1 season). Gary Aiken forged a path that many pitchers today strive to follow.
