Boston Preview II: 1915 World Series Souvenir Program and Scorecard

Today's highlight is a souvenir program and scorecard from the 1915 World Series played between the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies. This copy was printed for the Boston games, played at Braves Field (home today of Nickerson Field on the campus of Boston College). The scorecard preserves the completed score for Game 3, won with a final score of 2-1 by the Red Sox. The Sox would go on to win the series in five games. Several future Hall of Famers played in the series, including Babe Ruth in his first World Series appearance, as well as Tris Speaker, Harry Hooper, and Grover Cleveland Alexander.
