1946:
Bobby Bonds in born. Although his one year in with the Yankees is
perhaps remembered more for the players involved in the trades that
brought him to New York and sent him away (to the Yanks from the
Giants for Bobby Murcer, and to California for Mickey Rivers and Ed
Figueroa), he put up 30/30 (32 home runs, 30 steals) in 1975 for the
Bombers.

protests a called third strike in the 6th‚ he is tossed‚ along
with his manager and the entire Bomber bench.
