June 10, 1902
Baseball lifer Horace Fogel, also known for his career as a sportswriter, is fired as the manager of the Giants just 44 games into the season. The 51-year-old former manager, who will go on to an administrative position with the Phillies, will be best remembered in New York for his attempt to turn future Hall of Fame hurler Christy Mathewson, a sophomore pitcher who won 20 games in his rookie year, into a position player.
