In 1908, One of baseballʹs most famous blunders occurred in a game between the New York Giants and the visiting Chicago Cubs.

However, Fred Merkle, who was on first base, began to leave the field apparently without bothering to tag second; the Cubs then claimed to have forced Merkle out. Merkle was eventually ruled out, negating the winning run and leaving the game tied. (The Cubs won a rematch game on October 8 and with it, the National League pennant; Chicago then went on to win the World Series.)
