Davis lends experience to Herd in Brown's absence

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — “There’d been an incident the night before,” Davis recalls, “and both benches cleared.” The league immediately fined every player $300, a fair piece of change for a minor-leaguer at the time.

“Well, we could have been suspended, so we all (including the rival Iowa Cubs, also well out of playoff contention) decided to start our suspensions that day,” as Davis puts it. “The pitchers were throwing like (batting practice) and everyone swings at the first pitch.” A passed ball in the ninth inning finally produced a run and “the game was over in 56 minutes.”

What happens in the clubhouse stays in the clubhouse, but it was fun to watch Marty Brown smile at this new revelation that for at least 48 hours, he had another rebel in the cause.
