Pie Traynor, the Hall of Fame third baseman, was reputed to be a mild-mannered man who seldom argued with the umpires and never used profane language. But one day the legendary Bill Klem, perhaps the greatest of umpires, threw Traynor out of a game.
The writers were astounded. And after the game, they sought an explanation from Klem for the ejection.
"He wasn't feeling well," Klem said.
"He looked OK before the game," a reporter replied.
"Well, he told me he was sick of my stupid decisions."
