The 1911 Boston Rustlers season was the 41st season of the franchise. With George Dovey having died in 1909, John Dovey and his business partner John Harris sold the Boston Doves team after the 1910 season to William Hepburn Russell, who changed the team name to the Boston Rustlers and brought back former manager Fred Tenney. Tenney's retirement at the end of the season marked the end of an era, as he was the last player to have been a part of the 1890s dynasty teams. In spite of their 44-107 record, four regular players managed to hit over .300 for the season, led by Doc Miller, who hit .333.[1]

Regular season

  • May 22, 1911: Boston pitcher Cliff Curtis lost his 23rd game in a row, dating back to 1910, still the all-time record for consecutive losses by a pitcher.[2]
  • October 6, 1911: Boston pitcher Cy Young loses his final game (and third in a row) against the Brooklyn Dodgers at Washington Park. Young's 511th and final win came two weeks prior at Pittsburgh's Forbes Field.
