FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»August 28, 1960: In a battle of New York's chief rivals for the American League pennant, Baltimore's Milt Pappas has Chicago down 3–0 in the 8th. An apparent 3-run home run by Ted Kluszewski is nullified because umpire Ed Hurley calls time just before Pappas delivers. Hurley spotted Floyd Robinson and Earl Torgeson warming up along the RF sideline. The Sox argue for 15 minutes, with Nellie Fox and Al Lopez being tossed, before Klu hits again and lines out. The O's prevail 3–1 and take over 2nd place, two games behind the Yankees, and the Sox are three 1/2 back.
