Here is one from a 1920's game between the Indians and Red Sox with Cleveland at bat.

"Tris Speaker steps into the lefthanders' box. The pitch. It's a swinging bunt hugging the third base line. Do or die play. The late Vitt [Boston's third baseman, Ossie Vitt] just passed away and Speaker is the runner at first."

That's one I've never seen. Jack do you remember where it came from?
