On May 1, 1915
Reds player-manager Buck Herzog and home plate umpire Charles Rigler fought on the field during a 9-5 loss to the Cardinals in St. Louis.
The trouble started when Cardinal second baseman Miller Huggins tagged out Tommy Leach of the Reds on a hidden ball play. The base umpire (at the time there were only two umpires on the field) had his back to the play and did not see the tag, so Rigler called Leach out. Herzog claimed Rigler had no jurisdiction in the matter, and in the ensuing srgument, the Reds skipper pushed the umpire and stepped on his foot cutting his toe with his spikes. Rigler responded by swinging his mask at Herzog, strking him above the right eye. Herzog was suspended for five days by the league.
