Bill Wamsbganss

Indians second baseman Bill Wamsbganss broke his throwing arm in preseason and would miss 47 games, becoming one of many Indians who suffered injuries during the 1921 season. Catcher Steve O’Neill broke a finger on May 30 and missed 48 games. Speaker himself was injured several times during the season, and after a knee injury in September went 1-for-13 in the Indians’ late-September showdown with New York.
