I am looking at our memorabilia now -- the stub says Ebbotts Field. It also says that this was a night game -- Brooklyn's first.

I don't have precise data on that, but I do recall my dad telling me that Mechecnie had the bullpen up several times because of Vander Meers' wildness. He was sitting near the bullpen at Crosley that day, and used to tell us about how he kept booing the relievers that the manager would send down to warm up, just in case.

If you throw out yesterday's game, the other 4 have a total of 8 walks between them. This guy had 8 walks!
