Item # 572024
September 22, 1958
THE SPRINGFIELD UNION, Springfield, Massachusetts, September 22, 1958 This 22 page newspaper has two column headlines on the front page:
* Williams' Bat Injures Woman Fan in Stands
* Housekeeper of Red Sox General Manager Suffers Contusion Over Eye in Boston Accident
with related photos. (see)
Also more on page 14 including photo of Williams leaving first aid station where the victim was taken. (see)
This tells of Ted Williams losing his temper after striking out and throwing his bat which ended up hitting Gladys Heffernan, cleaning lady for the Boston Red Sox's general manager. This is nice to have from a city close to Boston.
Other news of the day throughout. Minor spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
