Sketchley called out for batting out of order

4/26/1942 – In a game at Comiskey Park, the White Sox had some difficulties with their batting order. The unofficial batting order, given to the official scorer a few minutes before game time, had Bob Kennedy scheduled to bat sixth and Bud Sketchley to bat seventh. Then came the official batting order as submitted to the umpires and the Indians, showing Sketchley was supposed to bat ahead of Kennedy. The public address announcer, who had supplied the lineup to scorer, corrected his listing and announced the proper order. Kennedy, batting out of order, supplied the third out in the second inning. In the third inning, before Sketchley took his turn at bat, Manager Jimmy Dykes ran out to Umpire Steve Basil and told him that Sketchley was not the proper batter. Sketchley sat and Tom Turner batted since he was listed after Kennedy. The Indians thought (and the scoreboard showed) that Sketchley was called out for batting out of turn, which was not the case since the Pale Hose successfully changed to Turner before Sketchley completed his turn at the plate. Turner doubled to left center and eventually scored. When the second out was recorded in the inning and the Indians saw they needed one more, Cleveland Manager Lou Boudreau argued and then protested the game. The protest was dropped as the Tribe beat Chicago, 3-2.

Submarine P Carl Mays quits the mound after two innings at Chicago

Submarine P Carl Mays quits the mound after two innings at Chicago, blaming his teammates for lack of support afield. American League president Ban Johnson suspends Mays indefinitely and orders umpires not to let him pitch. In defiance of Johnson’s order that no action be taken until Mays is returned to good standing, Boston owner Harry Frazee will trade Mays to the Yankees for pitchers Bob McGraw and Allen Russell and $40,000. The Yankees then get a court order restraining Johnson from interfering, further eroding Johnson’s authority and standing, and the American League directors reinstate Mays. In retaliation, on October 29th the National Commission will refuse to recognize the Yankees’ third-place finish and will withhold the players’ share of the World Series pool. New York’s owners will pay out of their own pockets, and Johnson will never recover his authority.

1918 – At Comiskey Park, Babe Ruth of the Red Sox six-hits the Cubs in the opening game of the World Series, 1 – 0. The Fall Classic game, which starts almost a month earlier than usual due to World War I, is played at the White Sox home field rather than Weeghman Park (to be renamed Wrigley Field in 1926) due to the larger seating capacity. During the 7th-inning stretch, a military band plays “The Star Spangled Banner” and Fred Thomas, on leave from the Navy, snaps to attention.
