Can't Predict Baseball: Ty Cobb Beats Up A Cripple

On this day in 1912 Ty Cobb grew tired of listening to heckling by Yankee fans and jumped into the stands near the Tigers dugout at Hilltop Park and pummeled a handicapped fan. Otto Blotz was the man who could not defend himself against the "Georgia Peach" as he only had one hand. Class act right there.

On this day in 2005 the White Sox did not have the lead in a game when they are beaten by the Baltimore Orioles 6-2. This is the first time this season the White Sox did not have a lead in a game establishing a new major league record with 37 straight games to start a season and tied the 1934 New York Yankees and the 1942 St. Louis Cardinals for the third longest span in major league history.
