      BB-Ref. and Retrosheet don't show Merkle playing any games at third in
      1916. But the NY Evening Telegram and the NY Times reported that he
      played there on April 29, 1916. He was shifted to first in the 11th
      inning.

      This is correct. And despite being much maligned for his boner he was one of John McGraw s most trusted confidants. Merkle was a good guy afterall!
