The time a manager threw an umpire's clothes onto the field

A manager aired an umpire's dirty laundry, literally.Louisville manager George Tebeau was in the dugout during the Colonels May 4, 1904 doubleheader against St. Paul and thought umpire George Bausewine's strike zone was unreliable.  MORE: Brian Williams promotional night | Odd MiLB rules | MiLB's best statesTebeau shouted at Bausewine but the umpire ignored him. When

 Tebeau ran on the field arguing, Bausewine ejected him and gave him five minutes to leave the ballpark.   The manager was enraged. He broke into Bausewine’s dressing room, took the clothes out of Bausewine's locker, scrambled onto the field and heaved the umpire’s clothes all over the grass. The crowd of 1,500 howled at the sight of an umpire's personal shirt, pants, socks, shoes and underwear scattered around the diamond.A post-game fight between Bausewine and Tebeau "was averted by the interference of outsiders," the Indianapolis Journal reported the next day. Tebeau finished his string of revenge by locking Bausewine out of the umpire's dressing room. He was suspended 10 days by the American Association. Tim Hagerty is the broadcaster for the Triple-A El Paso Chihuahuas, and is on Twitter at @MinorsTeamNames.
