Default John McGraw and the 125th anniversary of The Great South End Grounds Fire

Wikipedia describes the Great Roxbury Fire of May 16, 1894. 118 buildings destroyed. It was home of the Boston Beaneaters... And the fire began about the same time Baltimore's John McGraw precipitated a fight with Boston's Tommy Tucker by stomping Tucker's head as he tagged Tucker out at third base....

The History Guy explains...

127th anniversary, not 125th... sorry 'bout dat.
