Milwaukee Journal, July 26, 1912:
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn, July 26—Nicollet ball yard came near being the scene of an assassination Wednesday afternoon near the close of the second game between the Millers and those [Louisville] Colonels. As he returned to the bench [Louisville pitcher Doc Moskiman] pulled off his glove…and in a childish burst of temper hurled it at the bench.
A gust of air caught the glove and it whizzed through one of the boxes at the rate of fifty miles an hour. It zipped past the ruddy countenance and rotund dome of Rev. Golightly Morrill…the glove whirled around him and slammed the Honorable Adolph Eberhart squarely in the gubernatorial eye. The governor wiped out his eye and laughed, but not G.L.
A later examination of the glove showed that it was not injured in the slightest degree by contact with the eagle eye of His Excellency. A cursory slant at his official niblets disclosed that he wasn’t scratched. All’s well that ends well.
A much happier ending than the Reggie Jackson-Queen Elizabeth incident.
for his generous support.
