Last night while I was watching the game I was flipping through a little book I have of baseball records, etc., and I came across this.
I was looking at the all-time records for shutting out teams, etc, and there is an entry about Don Drysdale. Back in 1968, Drysdale was working on his fourth consecutive shutout. It was the ninth inning, and he had loaded the bases with nobody out. He then hit the next batter with a pitch, but the umpire called the batter out for "not making an attempt to get out of the way" (the call thats never made). Drysdale then got the next two out with no damage for his shutout.
The umpire who made the controversial call---Harry Wendelstadt, father of Hunter, who made the same call a couple of weeks ago against Crede. Like father, like son.
Anyway, I just thought that was funny. Anyone else have any interesting trivia?
