    Person: James Otis Crandall (October 8, 1887 – August 17, 1951) was a right handed pitcher and second baseman. He was the first player to be consistently used as a relief pitcher. Consequently, he was given the nickname Doc by Damon Runyon who said Crandall was "the physician of the pitching emergency". He played from 1908 to 1918, first for the New York Giants, and then briefly for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1913 and than the Federal League with St. Louis from 1914 to 1916. Person: Frederick Carlisle Snodgrass (October 19, 1887 - April 5, 1974) was an American center fielder in Major League Baseball from 1908 to 1916 for the New York Giants and the Boston Braves. He played under manager John McGraw and with some of the early greats of baseball including Christy Mathewson. Source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Otis_Crandall en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Snodgrass
