Did you know that in 1959 Santiago "Chago" Rosario was selected to represent Puerto Rico at the Pan American Games in the city of Chicago (Illinois)? This was historic because it was the first time that Puerto Rico participated with his baseball team in the Pan American Games (that team won a silver medal and Chago helped offensively and defensively).


Last week in Vancouver, B.C., Seattle Pitcher Jim Coates threw one high and tight and struck Ricardo Joseph of Vancouver on the shoulder. Joseph charged the mound, but before he could get to Coates, he was tackled from behind and had his chin bloodied by Seattle Catcher Merritt Ranew. The ensuing free-for-all finally subsided, but then Vancouver's Tommy Reynolds bunted up the first base line, forcing Coates to field the ball and tried to run the pitcher down. Again Ranew raced to the aid of Coates. Vancouver's Santiago Rosario dashed from the on-deck circle and hit Ranew over the head with his bat, opening up a deep three-inch gash. There is internal bleeding in the brain, and the left side of Ranew's face is paralyzed.

This was the third attack with a hat that professional baseball has produced in nine months. For hitting Los Angeles' John Roseboro over the head last August, San Francisco's Juan Marichal received a nine-day suspension and a $1,750 fine. The comparative mildness of the punishment was condoned because 1) Marichal's team was deeply involved in the pennant race and 2) it was the first such incident in major league baseball, and there was no precedent for punitive action. But a warning should have come immediately from the Commissioner that future attacks would bring drastic punishment. None was sounded. Two weeks later Cleveland's Pedro Gonzales swung his bat at Detroit's Larry Sherry; Gonzales was fined $500 and suspended for 13 days.

In the Vancouver case Pacific Coast League President Dewey Soriano acted with commendable vigor and proper severity. He fined the lesser culprits in the incident, fined Rosario, too, and then suspended him for the remainder of the season. Soriano said, "Using a bat on a player is not part of baseball."

Soriano is right. And we recommend strongly that Commissioner Eckert step in where his predecessor failed to do so and say flatly that the next man who tries to hit an opponent with a bat will be expelled from organized baseball for life.
