Minnie Minoso contorts himself in order to slide in safely at home, getting his toe in before the tag during a game at Comiskey Park on June 25, 1960. Plate umpire John Rice is obstructed and doesn’t see that Red Sox catcher Russ Nixon had the ball in his hand and not his glove. The White Sox will lose the argument but still pull out the win 7-6
* Thanks to member Ron Bonnes who discovered a Chicago Sun-Times headline indicating Minoso was called OUT on the play.
* Thanks also to Dave Bar-Dov who located the info.
