Aug 13, 1908 Cy Young Day is celebrated by 20‚000 in Boston. He pitches briefly against an All-Star team that includes Jack Chesbro‚ Hal Chase‚ Willie Keeler‚ Harry Davis‚ and George Mullin. The game is interrupted several times for presentations to the great hurler‚ including a great loving cup from the AL for all his accomplishments. This is Keeler's last appearance this season‚ as he returns home to Brooklyn‚ partly in protest to Highlander manager Kid Elberfeld's surly managerial style (as stated in Jim Reiseler's book Before They Were Bombers)). Keeler quits without pay saying‚ "I cannot give you a run for your money"‚ He had been ill and muffed a flyball in left field‚ but he will return next season to play under manager George Stallings. - No details
