Funny Baseball Story

Postby StlSluggers » Wed Jun 18, 2008 10:12 am

On Aug. 17, 1957, Hall of Fame member Richie Ashburn of the Philadelphia Phillies fouled off a pitch that struck Alice Roth, wife of Philadelphia Bulletin sports editor Earl Roth, breaking her nose. As Roth was being helped from the stands, Ashburn fouled off another pitch, striking Roth as she lay on a stretcher.

Sounds like something out of the Naked Gun movies. :-D

funnyest part about this story is that she would need a stretcher to carry her away with a broken nose.
