Toledo News Bee, August 2, 1912:
[Umpire] Ollie Chill was the stormy petrel of a raging hurricane that swept Swayne field yesterday…before he found a haven in the umpires’ shanty, was struck several times by fans, enraged over the arbritrator’s decision in calling out Otto Burns at third in the first part of Toledo’s half of the last inning.
Chill started to walk through the crowd to his shanty but got in a jam. Some husky swung at the umps and sloughed him on the head. On he went, only ro receive a major league kick from an infuriated bug. Ollie started to mix things, but resumed his journey when another fan clouted him on the jaw with a haymaker.
Go back in there, chill them n*****s out and wait for the cavalry, which should be comin’ directly.
And happy birthday, Ollie.
for his generous support.
