According to 1 Giants player, quoted in The Sporting News on August 14, “ One of those American League umps called a phantom double play, though the pivot infielder was never near the bag. They were trying hurry the game along, while we were hustling to win.” The losing hurler for the Giants was Hal Schumacher. The 2nd game of the best of 3 game series will be played on August 5th at Yankee Stadium.

Interesting about the 1969 game:


"A livelier ball was used for 5 innings and all runs but 1 were scored with it."


Now they would NEVER do something like that in today's games, would they? (See 2017 World Series). When ratings are in question, always go to the livelier ball!
