This Day in Baseball History
On August 20, 1964, New York Yankees infielder Phil Linz becomes embroiled in controversy when he begins to play “Mary Had A Little Lamb” on his harmonica during the team’s post-game bus ride. Linz draws the wrath of Yankee manager Yogi Berra, who slaps the harmonica out of Linz’ hands. The Yankees had lost their game earlier in the day, 5-0, to the Chicago White Sox.
