Description
Measures 14½ x 11½ inches. Filled out scorecard from Spring Training 1939 with many local St. Petersburg shops including the Atlantic Brewery of Orlando. Has signatures of 3 players, all future All-Stars. Enos Slaughter (two signatures), Joe "Muscles" Medwick and Marty "Slats" Marion.

Medwick's hard-charging style of play got him pulled out of the seventh game of the 1934 World Series by Commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis. This occurred when Detroit Tigers fans started pelting him with garbage after he slid hard into third base on a triple. Landis also ordered Tigers third baseman Marv Owen, into whom Medwick had slid, benched. Medwick remains the only known player to be thrown out of a game for his own personal safety. When asked about the incident by reporters after the game, a perplexed Medwick said, "Well, I knew why [the Tiger fans] threw that garbage at me. What I don't understand is why they brought it to the park in the first place."
