On July 15, 1900 In the minor league American League, Detroit Tigers manager George Stallings, afraid that his home crowd would injure umpire Joe Cantillon after the previous day’s hostilities, refuses to let him work, and is ready to forfeit today’s game to the Cleveland Lake Shores. But Lake Shores manager Jimmy McAleer agrees to play using reserve player Sport McAllister as the ump, and Detroit wins, 6 – 1.
