On September 1, 1952 — 1952 – In the second game of a doubleheader in St. Louis‚ the Indians lose a critical game‚ 2 – 1‚ in 5 innings when rain halts the game for the second and last time. The Indians are ahead in the 6th‚ but a porous tarp turns the infield into a quagmire‚ washing out their three runs. The Indians protest the game‚ saying Bill Veeck told the grounds crew to work slowly‚ but Will Harridge will reject the protest.
