Rough Play in Dodgertown, March 25, 1969


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.
