New York Tribune, June 30, 1914:
A near-riot marked the first game of the Cincinnati-Chicago series [in Chicago yesterday], which the Cubs won by a score of 10 to 7. In the visitors’ sixth inning Moran fouled down the third base line. Hoblitzell protested to Eason, the umpire, that the hit was fair and was ordered to the clubhouse. Charley Herzog ran into the argument and was ordered to join Hoblitzell.
A few moments later one of the players took Moran’s bat and threw it toward the players’ bench. The aim was wide and the bat landed in the field boxes. Immediately spectators swarmed out upon the field, but they were calmed by attendants and players.
Unsurprisingly, that was the last time Castillo threw a baseball while wearing a professional uniform.
