On June 4 1935 — 1935 – Dizzy Dean‚ annoyed by what he perceives as poor fielding behind him‚ berates his teammates in the dugout in full view of the fans and writers. Rip Collins and Joe Medwick start arguing back and Frank Frisch and Pepper Martin step in before any fights start. Dean shows his frustration by lobbing the ball in to Pittsburgh batters and finally leaves in the 7th to a smattering of boos with the Cardinals down‚ 9 – 3. They score a pair to lose‚ 9 – 5.
