Dave Bancroft - Boston Braves

Dave Bancroft – Boston Braves

1924 wasn’t a great year for the Boston Braves (now know as the Atlanta Braves). With a 53-100 record, they would finish 8th in National League.

On July 1, the Braves’ player-manager Dave Bancroft ruptures his appendix. The future Hall of Fame short stop will not play again until September 10.

Some years are just like that. In baseball you can go from bad to worse. All you can do is persevere.
