It's July 14, 1946, in Boston, and the Indians are in the Boudreau Shift for Red Sox slugger Ted Williams. From your elevated perch slightly to the third base side of home plate you're watching as the Splendid Splinter awaits a pitch from Cleveland's Red Embree. And just look at the defensive alignment! In the infield, that's player/manager Boudreau, the shortstop, lined up on the right side between first baseman Jimmy Wasdell and third baseman Ken Keltner, who's playing just to the right of second base. Second baseman Jack Conway is out in right field near the foul line, with center fielder Jim Seerey lined up in deep right-center, and right fielder Hank Edwards in deep right. Left fielder George Case looks lonely positioned behind short. Red Embree is the pitcher, rookie Sherm Lollar is the catcher and Bobby Doerr is on deck for the Bosox. For the record, Williams went 1-for-2 in the game with a double, two walks and two runs scored. Yes, it's true, only three umpires worked the game. And how about the billboards on the Green Monster in left!
