Frank and the Umpire

Before the Los Angeles Dodgers, there were the Brooklyn Dodgers, the bitter rival of the New York Yankees. The Dodger fans were known to be particularly loyal to their team, so much that when one of the umpires made a close call during the 10th inning in one of their games against Cincinnati Reds in 1940, the fans were shouting "Kill the Umpire." After the Reds won, 4 - 3, Frank Germano, a true Dodgers fan, leapt from the stands and punched the umpire.
