Shortstop Joe Tinker and first baseman Frank Chance formed, with second baseman Johnny Evers, the Chicago Cubs' famous double-play trio in the early 20th century.
In 1910, a journalist for the New York Mail lauded the three players in a poem called "Baseball's Sad Lexicon" that includes the lines,
Making a giant
hit into a double,
Words that are heavy
with nothing but trouble;
Tinker to Evers to Chance.
