Veeck objected because the same umpires who ruled the. original suspended game were not used Monday night when both clubs were forced to use as many players as possible who played in the original contest. Umpires called the first part of the game last April 20 at the end of seven innings when the Sox were leading, 10 to 2. The two clubs r have another suspended game to play off in Chicago which also called with the Sox in Cliff a -L i an , £ nto ^ , was with the abbreviated loss.
