  • In a baseball game between the San Francisco Giants and their arch-rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, pitcher Juan Marichal is involved in a notorious incident for which he will be long remembered.[16] Twice in the first three innings, Marichal threw near the head of Dodger leadoff batter Maury Wills. As Marichal is batting against Sandy Koufax in the last of the third inning, Dodger catcher Johnny Roseboro's return throws to the mound fly too close to his head and one grazes his ear. Words are exchanged, and Roseboro, throwing off his catcher's helmet and mask, continues the argument. Marichal responds by repeatedly hitting Roseboro's unprotected head with his bat.[17] A 14-minute brawl ends with Giants captain Willie Mays escorting the bleeding Roseboro (who would require 14 stitches) back to the clubhouse.
