The above is incorrect- the World Series he describes was actually held in 1909. Wagner's Pirates defeated Cobb's Tigers 4-3. Despite being considerably older (about 12 years) than his adversary, Wagner actually outhit young Ty Cobb, and had more stolen bases.There was no World Series in 1901- the first World Series was in 1903, between the Boston Americans (later named "Red Sox") and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Wagner also played in that series, however, he did not play well and was reportedly ashamed of this- this led him to try to redeem himself in the 1909 series, which he definitely did.
