1912: The Snodgrass Muff
In the 10th inning of Game 7, Fred Snodgrass of the Giants dropped a routine fly to put the tying run on second base. Never mind that Snodgrass made an acrobatic, potentially game-saving catch on the next play, and that Hall of Fame pitcher Christy Mathewson misplayed another pop foul in that inning to allow the Red Sox to get the Series winning hit. New York's manager, John McGraw didn't consider Snodgrass the goat of the Series. "Often I have been asked what I did to Snodgrass after he dropped that fly ball in the World Series of 1912," McGraw said. "I raised his salary $1,000."
