Manager H.C. Shedd of the Rutland, Vermont semi-pro baseball team, in 1919 brought the Boston Red Sox and Babe Ruth to town to play a game. Shedd originally tried to get E.G. Barrows to agree to a September 21 date. Walter Johnson was told about it and sent this telegram indicating that he was available to pitch that day. The game ended up being played two weeks later and Johnson was not there.
