On July 28, 1962 — After mysteriously disappearing to use the restroom with Gene Conley when the Red Sox bus got stuck in New York traffic two days ago, infielder Pumpsie Green shows up in the team’s hotel in Washington D.C., having missed a doubleheader loss to the Senators. The prodigal infielder is fined $500 for his disappearance, while his teammate, who will return on June 30, still remains AWOL.
