1920 March

23rd  In a spring training game in Jacksonville between the Dodgers and Yankees, Babe Ruth goes into the stands after the first half of the 9th inning to confront a fan who has been “riding” him. The fan pulls a knife and before things can get ugly, Ernie Shore drags the Babe away.

25th  In a spring training match between the Yankees and Dodgers, a sweeping inside curve ball by Brooklyn’s Little Jeff Pfeffer beans Chick Fewster striking the Yankee SS behind the ear and flattening him. Fewster revives 10 minutes later but soon loses the ability to speak. Taken to the hospital with a skull fracture and a blood clot on his brain, Fewster will recover slowly and return to play in mid-season.

26th Walter Johnson is wild and hittable in his first intersquad game, hitting 3 batters and walking 2. One of the batters he hits is Bucky Harris who takes a pitch that glances off the side of his head. Johnson gives up 7 runs in 3 innings.
