A 15-minuU iMi-ra(t of pop bottles, over-riot fruit and wads of paper forced tin umpire Al Barlick to givt the CiimiU a 8-0 forfeit victory in the niglitcap of a Shlbe Park doublehcarter. He said he did It "for the good of Ihe people, baseball and the players." It was Ihe first major league forfeit since Sept. 27, 1942. Thai cun- lest, too, involved ihe Cilants. The New Yorkers were playing lire Bos- Ion Bravcc when a horde ol youngsters swarmed on the field. The Phils had won the opener 4-0 to sti'eich their win streak to six straight. But the fans ended the string iu the ninth inning of the second game. At Ihe (imp the Cilants were ahead 4-2. The ire of the Phil rooters— 19.742 strong—was directed at Um- ,pii-e George Burr. Barlick. immptrc- in-chlef since he was officiating behind the plate, merely failed the i called the forfeit forfeit. Hi acted under a Nation*! L«««u« rule which says a |un« may be declared forfeiied If the field Is noi cleared within 15 mlnul« aft«r ttart Of a rhub«rb. Lear HI I nttpmut Barr, umpiring at Mtond, made the dUputtd decision that turned loot* the fury of the fans. He called "a hit" what the Phils and the fans Insisted was an out, The Giant's Joe Lafata lashed a long fly which outfielder Rlchlt Ashburn claimed wa« caught elfht inches from Ihe ground. Barr laid it was "no catch." The blow scored Willard Martial! from third. Ashburn .slammed his glove to the ground. He jlormed In at »arr. Other Phill playera joined the argument. Barr Just turned his back—the decision stuck. Then the pup boltlet be«an to fly. together with jeering shouts of "kill the umpire." Dailkk told Phil manager Eddie Sawyer to clear the field for re«- mnpiion of play. But efforts to quiet the fans and halt the bottle barrage proved fruitless.
