Aug 21, 1901 In Baltimore, Orioles pitcher Joe McGinnity is tossed for spitting in the face of umpire Tom Connally. When Detroit's Kid Elberfeld intervenes, he is decked by Baltimore's Mike Donlin. Bill Keister also gets involved, as do some fans, and the police, who arrest the players and a fan. Judge Harry Goldman, a part-owner of the O's, releases the players and fines the fan a $100. McGinnity is suspended for 10 days for the spitting, which he says was not spitting but throwing his tobacco quid at him. Ban Johnson will reduce the suspension after meeting with McGinnity and John McGraw (source: Terry Simpkins). - No Details
Aug 21, 1901 08/21/1901 - Detroit at Baltimore - AL - Baltimore and their fans had been upset for a week because of some calls made by umpire Tommy Connolly. Management had warned the umpire before the game that there may be trouble and asked him to arrange for a substitute but he refused. In the bottom of the 4th inning, Detroit was leading 7 to 4. The lead-off batter for Baltimore was called out at first, although he clearly looked safe. The Orioles immediately surrounded the umpire arguing the call. Players started fighting amongst themselves and Kid Elberfeld was arrested and escorted off the field. Fans poured onto the field and rushed the box office for refunds. Connolly escaped to the groundskeeper's office, but not without taking a couple stiff blows from some fans. He stayed in the office for over an hour before the crowd thinned out enough for him to leave. Club officials asked the police to keep Connolly away from the ballpark for the next game.- Washington Post, 08/22/1901, p 8 (Detroit)
