After 14 years as an AL umpire, Stevens worked as a roving supervisor of league umpires
until his death. He also worked as a NBA official. During the 1950 season, Stevens
thumbed the Yankees' Johnny Lindell
out of a game in a "delayed call." It seems Johnny
made some unkind remarks from the bench, and Stevens booted him, but did not notice
that Lindell remained on the bench. For his part, Lindell did not realize he'd been
banished from a game he wasn't playing in, and was surprised a few days later when
he received word from the AL office of his $25 fine.
