Ed Barrow is hired as Red Sox manager.
Since Jack Barry the current managing of the Red Sox enlisted in the Navy the red sox had to hire a new guy for manigerial duties. In 1918 they decided to hire Ed Barrow to manage the team. A war tax as planned to be placed in bleacher seats, 3 cents, and 10 cents on other seats. This proposal was later thrown out.
