Lew Fonseca from the Chronology
May 30, 1932 - At Cleveland the Tribe takes a pair from the White Sox 12-6 and 12-11. Afterwards Chicago claims the umpire George Moriarty deliberately made wrong calls and the ump fights with four of the Sox players under the stands. Moriarty breaks his fist knocking down pitcher Milt Gaston but he is pummeled by manager Lew Fonseca and catchers Charlie Berry and Frank Grube. The ump ends up in the hospital while Fonseca and three players will receive fines for the fight. Will Harridge will suspend Gaston for 10 days fine him $500 and rebuke Moriarty.
Jun 5, 1931 - Two days after beating the White Sox 2-1 Lefty Grove pitches 6 innings of relief against Chicago losing 7-5 in 12 innings. A homer by Lew Fonseca beats Grove ending an 8-game winning streak by the A's ace. He'll promptly start another streak on the 8th.
Jun 9, 1928 - Outfielder Charlie Jamieson starts his 2nd triple play in 3 weeks this time against the Yanks in the 2nd inning. Ben Paschal is on 3B and Lazzeri on 1st when Jamieson snags a line drive hit by Joe Dugan. Charlie's quick throw to 1B Lew Fonseca nabs Lazzeri and Paschal is out at home when he tries to score. Again Cleveland is on the losing end as New York wins 7-3.
