"From the games earliest days, three outs have been required to complete a half-inning. Somehow, Florida Marlins relief pitcher Yorkis Perez forgot that time-honored rule last April in a game against the San Francisco Giants. After striking out Barry Bonds, Perez was so excited over his monumental achievement that he pumped his first and sprinted to the dugout. Embarrassingly for Yorkis, it was only the first out of the inning. Said first baseman Orestes Destrade of the Marlins, 'I was dumbfounded. I guess he figured striking out Barry Bonds was worth three outs.'" - Baseball Digest (August 1944, "Oops, So Sorry for Those Little Mistakes', Page 92)
