Today in Baseball History: July 24
 
Okay, it's not the Cubs...but it is a very memorable moment in baseball:

1983 George Brett's ninth inning homer, which puts the Royals ahead, is disallowed as the umpires rule the third baseman used too much pine tar on his bat, a Marv Throneberry model. American League president Lee McPhail will overrule the decision and on August 18th the game resumes with the Royals beating the Yankees, 4-3.

That reminds me of a game earlier this season when some team scored early in the game, but the umpires ruled that the runs didn't score. I forget why exactly, but like 4 innings later, the manager for that team was arguing about it, and the umpires put the runs on the board.

The game you are thinking about was the April 28th game between Baltimore and Cleveland. Baltimore scored on a sac fly in the 3rd, but the run was not initially counted, as a runner was doubled off first. Ed Montague called the official scorer in the sixth and had the score changed to reflect the run.
