On July 26, 1962, In New York pitcher Gene Conley and infielder Pumpsie Green of the Red Sox mysteriously disappear after a 13 – 3 loss to the Yankees. They leave the team bus in traffic to use a restroom and fail to return. Conley decides he wants to fly to Israel, and goes to the airport, but is refused a ticket because he does not have a visa. Conley was the loser in the game, pitching 2 2/3 inning, and walking in two of the eight earned runs allowed. Pumpsie did not play. Jim Bouton is the winner, shutting out the Hubmen for six innings.
