It Was Always Tom: How a Baseball Icon Predicted the 'Succession' Series Finale

Already, the game had included the first grand slam hit in a World Series, as well as the first home run ever slugged by a pitcher in a World Series. 

Then came Game 5 of the 1920 Fall Classic, which provided yet another slice of baseball history.

At League Park, the Cleveland Indians (American League) were hosting the Brooklyn Robins (National League). Brooklyn's Pete Kilduff was on second base and Otto Miller was on first in the fifth inning. 

Clarence Mitchell, Brooklyn's bullpen pitcher, was at bat. Mitchell smacked a drive to the right side of the infield on the third ball.

Bill Wambsganss, the Cleveland second baseman, jumped and snatched the ball out of midair.

He stepped on second base in one seamless motion, nullifying Kilduff. Then he tagged out Miller, who was sprinting from first to second base on contact.

Bang-bang-bang. With that, Wambsganss became the first man in World Series history to record an unassisted triple play, a distinction he still has to this day.

Completely finished. Then, entire credit goes to Sophie Kihm, the editor-in-chief of Nameberry, an online baby name catalog.
