From Morning Briefing:
A Detroit ballplayer was once heckled so mercilessly that he went into the stands and beat a fan senseless, reported Mike Downey of the Chicago Tribune. The fan was an amputee.
The ballplayer was Ty Cobb, who played for the Tigers, and the incident happened 92 years ago.
Added Downey: “It happened in New York, by the way, not in Detroit.”
