Bucky Harris's injured hand

This post is in response to another SABR email list question. SABR member Bob H shared this photo and asked:
Did Harris miss a few games with a hand injury late in the 1925 season, and manage from the bench?
Peck, Harris, Liebold, 9/24/25
from the Library of Congress

The Library of Congress newspaper site, Chronicling America, spans the years 1836-1922.  It wasn't going to be any help on this one.  So, I turned to one of my other favorite newspaper sites, Google News archives.

The Bend Bulletin - September 23, 1925

The Independent - September 23, 1925

These articles partly answer Bob H's question.  He did get injured, but they don't address how he managed.  More research to be done.
