Umpires Escorted From Ball Park by Spokane Police
SPOKANE, Aug. 11—An argumentative weekend was spent in the ball park at Spokane when the Indians played three games against the Bremerton Bluejackets. The situation was climaxed in Sunday's second game of a double header when the umpires had to be escorted form the park by police.
It all started when Saturday's contest, which Spokane won 9-8, was protested by Bremerton, who charged that the Indians batter driving in the winning tally had batted out of turn. Several Bremerton players were tossed for carping at the umps.
Then in the sixth inning of Sunday's wind-up, Bremerton infielder Bill Reese clouted a ball into the right field stands which pitcher Joe Faria had tossed to umpire Charles Dawson for exchange. Reese was ousted from the contest, the fourth Bremerton player of the week to be ejected by the officials.
In the ninth inning, Bremerton's Joe Gedzius was called out at home plate in a close play while trying to steal home with the tying run and two out.
The Bremerton club swarmed from the dugout, the Spokane nine moved in from the field and both teams engaged in a mass debate while the spectators clambered out from the stands onto the field.
Spokane owner Sam Collins leaped from his box and swung a bat in the faces of the angry Bluejackets.
That was when the constabulary entered the scene and escorted umpires Harold Regele and Dawson from the field and the park.

Brenner In Charge As Caps Take Pair
[Vancouver News-Herald, Aug. 12, 1946]
With their managerial problems solved, for the weekend at least, Vancouver’s Capilanos snapped out of a four-game losing streak at Salem Saturday and Sunday…
When Seattle’s Hal Patchett turned down the job as Cap pilot Friday, Catcher Bill Brenner was handed the reins and it’s just possible the job will be permanent. There’s a little less than a month to go in the schedule.
General manager Bob Brown, contacted by the News-Herald in Salem Sunday, expressed himself as quite satisfied with the way the young receiver handled the bossing job.
“Bill’s got a lot of fire and hustle,” said Bob, “and he won’t stand for any monkey business. I have another man in mind for the spot, but if I don’t get him, I’m sure Brenner will do a capable job.”
