This was shot at one of the eleven games played at Fenway vs the Cleveland Indians. We would like some help as to the exact date. Baseball Almanac gives us some clues. When we zoomed into the the scoreboard, we could see the rest of the games that day. Those games were St. Louis vs. Washington, Chicago at Philadelphia, and Detroit at New York. When comparing all possible dates with those matchups in 1940, we were suprised to note that there were at least 10 game dates with these exact same matchups. Anybody know why eight teams played exact matchups throughout the league so often?
Please share with any player or fan that might know the date of this game.
