Tubby Spencer Newsbeat
Thursday, June 18, 2015
My favorite ballplayer of the 1910s is back in the news! Pittsburgh Press, June 18, 1915:
Tubby was back in the majors in 1916, so it’s safe to say his career as a businessman didn’t take off right away.
Anyway, some of Tubby’s greatest hits: Dove through a plate glass window into a restaurant because he was hungry and saw a sandwich, lived as a hobo, was banned from the city of Louisville, was given $50,000 by his father to retire from baseball, then used a big chunk of the money to gamble and decided not to retire, got ejected from a game before it even started, and spent time in jail in Indianapolis for drunkenness. There was never a dull moment when Tubby was around.
