On June 4, 1939 — 6/4/1939 – In the first game of a doubleheader with Washington visiting St. Louis, the Browns batted out of turn in the second inning. They had made several lineup changes this day in an effort to end their 11-game losing streak and John Berardino mistakenly batted in Joe Glenn’s spot. The Senators pointed out the error and Glenn was ruled out, making Berardino the next correct batter. Beradino then made an out. The Browns survived this error and ended their losing streak by sweeping the doubleheader. We would like to find details of Berardino’s two plays. Please e-mail the webmaster if you have some information.
