April 26, 1925 - The Sox forfeit a game to the Indians. It happened in front of a Comiskey Park record crowd of 44,000 fans. So many fans were at the game that owner Charles Comiskey allowed fans on the field behind roped off sections of the outfield. With the Sox losing 7 - 4 in the 9th inning, many fans broke through the ropes, thinking the game was over. It wasn’t, as there were only two outs. Order was never restored and a forfeit was declared.

Were the first ones through the ropes relatives of William Ligue Jr?
