Nearly all of the games were close. 4 games in this Series were decided by one run. A fifth ended in a tie. A sixth was decided by two runs.

On October 16, 1912 the deciding game 8 took place at the new Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. It was also a close game and a easily caught ball dropped by Giant’s center fielder Fred Snodgrass known as the “$30,000 muff” (the difference between losing and winning) allowed Boston to take the game and the series. Said Snodgrass “I didn’t seem to be able to hold the ball. It just dropped out of the glove, and that was all there was to it.”
