On September 11, 1923 — Minor league head Michael Sexton fines the president of the Norfolk club $1,000 and suspends the team indefinitely for an attack on the umpire. Sexton also accused the Virginia League president of laxity in that this is the second attack on an ump in the league this year. Since the season is closed the suspension of the team does not affect the standings.
