Johnson vs Mathewson


#1

Since Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson were overlapping contemporaries, did they ever meet on the field? What were the results?

Richard K.

I’m not sure if they met on the field, although it’s not likely and if they did it was only a few times.

There is a 10 season window for them to have played against eachother. I know they did play against each other in the playoffs, so the only chance would be the limited (possibly non-existent) interleague play.

I’m not sure about interleague back in the early 1900’s.
