Tom Hall from the Chronology
Jul 14, 1999 - In an ill-conceived move umpires union-chief Richie Phillips announces that 57 umpires will resign on September 2. Among other things the umps reportedly are upset at the 3-day suspension Tom Hallion received for bumping Rockies C Jeff Reed on July 2.
Jun 20, 1994 - Umpires Dana DeMuth Tom Hallion Paul Runge and Angel Hernandez work the Atlanta-NY game wearing shorts and Braves T-shirts and caps. The umps regular equipment was lost in transit. The Braves win the game 7-3.
Jul 9, 1973 - In a record-setting walkathon between the Reds and Expos 25 base on balls are handed out as Montreal strolls to an 11-6 win. Well off the AL's two-team mark of 30 this tops the NL record of 23 last reached on July 7 1911. Six Montreal pitchers walk 16 one short of the record for an NL team while Reds pitchers Clay Carroll and Tom Hall walk 9. Hal King pinch hits a grand slam for the Reds in the 6th inning his 2nd pinch dinger in 9 days.
May 14, 1972 - Happy birthday Tony. On his 30th birthday Tony Perez knocks in all the 6 of the Reds' runs as they sweep a pair from the Cardinals winning 4-3 and 2-0. The nitecap is a stellar 3-hit 12 strikeout shutout by pitcher Tom Hall.
Aug 4, 1971 - Tom Walker of Fort Worth (Texas League) pitches a 15-inning 1-0 no-hit win over Albuquerque the 2nd longest no-hitter in baseball history. The Dukes Tom Haller matches Walker scattering 9 hits in 14 innings before exiting. Enos Cabell's run-scoring double ends it. Only Fred Toney's 17-inning no-hitter in 1909 is longer.
Aug 13, 1968 - Pitching 7 2/3 innings Tom Hall gains his first ML win as the Twins beat the Senators 8-4. Washington's Jim Hannan (7-3) takes the loss and doesn't help himself at bat striking out for the 13th straight time since July 24.
Feb 13, 1968 - The Giants trade C Tom Haller and P Frank Kasheta to the Dodgers for infielders Ron Hunt and Nate Oliver. This is the first trade between the 2 clubs since 1956 when Jackie Robinson was sent to the Giants but retired instead.
Jun 14, 1963 - The Giants win their second in a row by a 2-1 score winning with the same formula: one left on base. Tom Haller has a homer one of three SF hits. The 2 men left on base ties the record for fewest left on base in two consecutive games. The NL mark was set by the Giants in 1960 also in two wins.
