Post This day in Cubs History: April 1

BASEBALL SEASON IS OFFICIALLY HERE!!!!!!!!!!

Quote:
1996
» At Riverfront Stadium, umpire John McSherry calls time from behind the plate and collapses on the field with a massive heart attack and dies. The popular McSherry, a veteran of 21 seasons, had been suffering from a series of medical problems, aggravated by his weight of 328 pounds. The game, just seven pitches old between the Reds and Expos, is called, though owner Marge Schott feels otherwise: "Snow this morning and now this. I don't believe it. I feel cheated. This isn't supposed to happen to us, not in Cincinnati. This is our history, our tradition, our team. Nobody feels worse than me." Schott, who will later apologize, says it with flowers instead. But the Dayton Daily News will report on the 28th that the flowers she sends were given to her by television station covering the Reds.

1910
» Johnny Kling, Cubs catcher on their 1906–08 pennant winners, is reinstated. Kling won the world pocket billiard title over the winter of 1908-09 and swapped a baseball bat for a pool cue. Kling, who played for a Chicago semipro team while holding out for the entire 1909 season, is fined $700, and required to play for the Cubs at his 1908 salary of $4,500.

1969 - The Seattle Pilots trade minor-league outfielder Lou Piniella to the Royals for outfielder Steve Whitaker and pitcher John Gelnar. Piniella will be A.L. Rookie of the Year in Kansas City.

I can believe Marge did that. What a very callous woman, and I'll bet she's spending her time downstairs with Hitler and the drudge of history. When anyone on the field dies during a baseball game, nothing else matters. Baseball becomes insignificant to life itself.
