AP, July 26, 1936:
In a riotous doubleheader that saw Umpire Bill Summers felled and injured by one of more than a hundred missiles hurled upon the field by enraged fans, the New York Yankees overpowered the Chicago White Sox twice today.
A pop bottle hurled by an unidentified fan in the upper grandstand back of third base, where Summers was stationed, hit him in the groin and he collapsed.
That could have been one of the great viral videos of all time. Only thing that could have made it better is if Glockenbear had fallen on him afterwards.
