Bill Hogg from the Chronology
Sep 24, 1906 - Ed Walsh allows a first-inning run and that is all the Highlanders Bill Hogg needs as he buffaloes the White Sox 1-0 on 2 hits. A rain of bottles interrupts the game in the 8th as ump Silk O'Laughlin is the target of the fans' wrath.
Jun 19, 1906 - At Cleveland the Naps take a pair from New York 5-0 and 3-2 and switch places in the standings as a result. New York drops to 3rd. The wins are costly though as Bill Bradley has his arm fractured when hit by a Bill Hogg pitch in game 2. He will miss nearly half the season. Hogg reportedly says "That big Frenchman (Lajoie) is next on my list." Taking over at third for Bradley is Jap Barbeau at 5'5" the smallest man in the league.
