Aug 4, 1908 - In a 7-5 loss to Cleveland the Nationals' Otis Clymer and Jim Delahanty draw indefinite suspensions for abusing umpire Silk O'Loughlin. Delahanty a Cleveland native is fined $50 by Ban Johnson and barred from the Cleveland ballpark for one year for his unbecoming conduct though he denies that the language he used could be heard all over the park. Washington manager Joe Cantillon then declares that he will not put the other contenders at an unfair advantage and he benches Delahanty for games in Detroit St. Louis and Chicago. Delahanty will miss an additional 13 games because of this but the ban will be lifted at the beginning of the 1909 season.
