» June 30, 1959: At Wrigley, a bizarre play occurs in the 4th inning when two balls are put into play. On a 31 count, Bob Anderson's pitch to Stan Musial is wild and bounces back to the screen. Catcher Sammy Taylor ignores the ball, assuming it ticked off Musial's bat, but Cubs 3B Alvin Dark rushes in to retrieve the wild pitch/foul tip. The bat boy tosses the ball to field announcer Pat Piper, and Dark finally retrieves it from him. Meanwhile home plate ump Vic Delmore has handed a second ball to Anderson. Through all this, Musial reaches first with what he thinks is ball four, and then streaks for 2B. Simultaneously, Dark and Anderson fire to the bag. Anderson's throw goes into CF, but Dark's to Banks catches the sliding Musial. Stan ignores the tag and rambles to 3B as play is stopped. Delmore then rules Musial is out at 2B, while Al Barlick rules Stan safe at 1B. Both managers play the game under protest, but the Cards drop theirs after dropping the Cubs, 41. The National League will drop Vic Delmore at the end of the season.
