» April 11, 1907: On a cold day in New York, the Giants open against the Phillies before 16,000. A late snowstorm had to be cleared, but there are large piles of snow surrounding the field. In the 8th inning, with Frank Corridon pitching a one-hit 3-0 shutout over the Giants when fans, who have been pelting the players with snowballs, begin jumping from the stands and running around the outfield. There are no police on duty at the park, as required by the league, so umpire Bill Klem, in his ML debut, forfeits the game to the Phils. Seymour has the only hit for New York. New York C Roger Bresnahan appears wearing shin guards for the first time in a ML game, although the Phils' Red Dooin had worn papier-mβchι guards under his stockings in 1906 while catching and at bat. It will be a few years before detachable guards are adopted by all catchers.

» August 30, 1913: The Giants score six runs against Grover Cleveland Alexander, but the Phillies come back from the 60 deficit to score eight against Christy Mathewson. With two outs in the top of the 9th, and the Phils leading 86 over New York, umpire Bill Brennan, acceding to a request by the wily John McGraw, orders Phils captain Mickey Doolan (Phils manager Red Dooin had been ejected during the 6-run 6th) to have spectators removed from the CF bleachers, where they are waving hats, newspapers, and handkerchiefs to distract the batters. When Doolan refuses, Brennan forfeits the game, 90, to the Giants. Bedlam ensues and later, when the two umpires and Giants players try to board the train at the North Philadelphia Station, they are attacked by fans. The police draw their revolver to control the crowd. The Phils protest the forfeit and NL president Lynch will reverse the umpire and rule the game an 86 Phils win. The Giants then appeal. NL directors say both Brennan and Lynch are wrong, and order the game completed from the point at which it was stopped. The game will be finished October 2, with the outcome the same.
