Interesting to note that the Flu epedemic of 1918 started to hit in September and MLB season was shortened that year due to WW1. Baltimore banned baseball games. The World Series was played though. Evidently Babe Ruth got the Flu. The NHL Cancelled the Stanley Cup.
This is going to win the inexplicable post of the day award, but whenever I hear of a player with really long legs I think of Indians/White Sox third baseman Carlos Martinez. He only fielded .925 at third, mostly because his glove had to cover the equivalent area of a Zeppelin hangar door from the waist down.
