Heinie Sand

Sand was a slick fielder and fair hitter in six seasons as the regular Phillies shortstop. In September 1924, the Giants needed to win only one game in a series against the seventh-place Phillies to secure the NL pennant. Sand was approached by Giants outfielder Jimmy O’Connell, who said the New York players would make it worth $500 if Sand didn’t “bear down too hard.” Sand reported the bribe offer, and O’Connell and Giant coach Cozy Dolan, the instigator, were suspended for life.
