Who said the Dodger lineup didn't have any punch?
Outfielder Willie Crawford allegedly broke the nose of rookie pitcher Mike Strahler after Strahler made a "playful remark" in the Dodgertown barracks in Vero Beach, The Times reported. No other punches were thrown but Strahler reportedly said he would see a lawyer.
Two days later, Crawford visited the ailing pitcher and apologized. He also agreed to pay any medical bills.
