Offseason

Regular season

On August 21, 1924, the Phillies were traveling from games in St. Louis to Cincinnati when the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad train on which they were traveling turned over in the train yards in Mitchell, Indiana. Phillies players and personnel were unharmed but the engineer and fireman were killed in the accident.[2]

In the season's final series against the New York Giants at the Polo Grounds, Phillies shortstop Heinie Sand was offered $500 by Giants outfielder Jimmy O'Connell to throw the games. The Giants were battling for the pennant with the Brooklyn Robins. Sand rejected the bribe and reported it to Phillies manager Art Fletcher. It eventually led to the life-time suspension of O'Connell and Giants coach Cozy Dolan by Commissioner Landis, although future-Hall of Famers Frankie Frisch, George Kelly, and Ross Youngs were also implicated.[3]
