Johnson and Series veteran Art Nehf were pitching opponents in Game 1 of the Series, and both went the distance in what turned out to be a 12-inning cliffhanger witnessed by, among others, President Calvin Coolidge.

Fittingly, Johnson, after tough sledding in his two Series starts and some anxious moments in a four-inning relief sting in this climactic game, was the winning pitcher in this 4-3 game that netted Washington its first World Series title.
