On June 4, 1906 — 6/4/1906 – The Tigers were hosting Washington. In the top of the eighth inning, Howard Wakefield fouled out to start the inning but then Jake Stahl realized he was the person who was supposed to have batted. When he reported this to umpire Tim Hurst, the latter declared Stahl out and play proceeded. Stahl had cussed out Hurst earlier in the game and later in the eighth cussed out base umpire Tom Connor and was ejected. Not a great day for the Washington skipper.
