Strange but true...

September 7, 1960 - In a game at Comiskey Park Sammy Esposito booted a cinch double play ball hit by "Moose" Skowron with the Sox leading in the 8th inning, 4 - 2. That lead quickly evaporated as the Yankees rallied for four runs and a 6 - 4 win. Willie Harris and his friend, Jesse James (I swear I'm not making this up) had a wager on the game. When Esposito blew the ground ball Harris took matters into his own hands. He jumped over the box seat railing, ran on to the field and before a startled team punched Esposito right in the mouth. It took several uniformed police officers to pull Harris off of Esposito. Harris left the field shouting that he was 'a real Sox fan...'
