1910 November

5th In a 2-1 win over Oakland in the second game of a doubleheader, San Francisco’s Ping Bodie hits his 30th homer to set a since-topped PCL record (Tony Lazzeri will double it in 1925). Bodie will lead all minor league sluggers in homers.

6th Hunky Shaw of San Francisco goes 3-for-8 in a season-ending doubleheader against Oakland to win the PCL batting title with a .281 average, the lowest winning average in league history (as noted by John Spalding).

27th The touring Detroit Tigers, with Cobb and Crawford in the lineup, play an exhibition game in Havana, Cuba. With George Mullin on the mound, the Tigers beat Almendares, 4–0.

29th It’s the Cuban’s turn today as Cuban ace Jose Mendez shuts out the Tigers, 3–0. On steal attempts, Cobb is thrown out three times by Bruce Petway, who played last year for the Chicago Leland Giants, and Gervasio “Strike” Gonzales. On his last attempt, Cobb argues that the bag is three inches too far. When measured, Cobb is proved correct, but is still out stealing. A frustrated Cobb will cut short the tour and return to the U.S. The Tigers will end their Cuban swing at 7–4, with a tie. This is a reversal of last year’s 4–8 record, when they played the Cuban teams without Cobb and Crawford. The champion A’s also played in Havana at the same time, finishing with a 4–6 record.
