Huntington Avenue Grounds from the Chronology
Jun 27, 1911 -
In the 7th inning at Huntington Avenue Grounds the A's Stuffy McInnis steps into the batter's box to lead off and hits Ed Karger's warm-up pitch for an inside-the-park HR while the Red Sox are still taking their positions. Boston manager Patsy Donovan's protests to ump Ben Egan but Egan rejects the protest on the basis of Ban Johnson's new rule prohibiting warm-up pitches. The A's win 7-3. Ban Johnson's time-saving rule which declares that pitchers must throw as soon as the batter is in the box is soon withdrawn.
