The 1920 Boston Braves came to the bottom of their slide. In George Stallings 8th year, Boston had a record of 62-90 to finish seventh — 30 games behind the leader.
The “Miracle Man” had long ago run out of miracles. Stallings was a very frustrated man. He blamed the new owners for lack of support. He learned what many have learned … you can’t fire the owners.
Stallings was talented as his 1914 season showed. The 1920 version was a poor example of a baseball team. The team led the league in errors, scored fewer runs than any other team, and was seventh in staff ERA and total runs allowed.
Boston finished just a half game ahead of last-placed Philadelphia because the Phillies played one more game, a loss.
By the end of the season, Stallings would resign.
