Bristol Penalty Reduced After Hearing

By WAYNE MINSHEW

ATLANTA-Braves' Manager Dave Bristol, insisting certain umpires' vendettas against him and his team will continue, angrily accepted penalties of a two-day suspension and $300 fine June 22 for allegedly using abusive language and bumping umpire Lee Weyer in a May 31 incident at Cincinnati.

National League President Chub Feeney made the ruilng a day after listening to Bristol's appeal and viewing videotapes of the incident along with the Braves' manager and player Darrel Chaney at the N.L. office in New York.

Bristol was advised of the decision via a hand-delivered letter. Coach Vern Benson managed the team in Bristol's absence.

FEENEY'S LETTER ALSO warned Bristol that a recurrence of what happened at Cincinnati would bring further consequences after the National League president had lessened the original fine of $500 and five days' suspension. That, then, places the Braves' skipper on probation for the remainder of the season.

He hinted he might appeal to a higher court, the commissioner's office, but said, “I'm relieved it's not five days, but not pleased that it's two. I want to be with the club. This really hurts, especially at this particular time.

“I’ll serve it, but I won't like it."

The controversial play which brought about the fine and suspension involved Bristol and Weyer following a decision by the umpire on a tag play at second base. The Braves argued that shortstop Jerry Royster tagged out sliding Ken Griffey, who, they contend, never reached the bag. They also said that Weyer was out of position on the play.

FEENEY'S LETTER SAID that Bristol admitted using abusive language.

"I did," said the manager.

The letter added that Bristol bumped Weyer'at least three times.

"When we were there, watching the tape, he could find only one," said Bristol. "That was the time my cap came off. He's just taking the umpire's words. That's a one-way street and as long as those four are in the league, they'll be after me."

Remaining umpires on the team are Ed Montague, with whom Bristol had a run-in last season, Paul Runge and An Williams.

Minnesota Twins – 1987 – World Series (10/25/87)

Cardinal manager Whitney Herzog protests to 1st base umpire Lee Weyer after Tommy Herr #28 was called out in a rundown in the 6th inning of game 7. #14 for Twins is Kent Hrbek, #7 for Cardinals is 1st base coach Rich Hacker.

HERR, OUT A T FIRST?

The sixth inning of Game #7 produced a very important and controversial play. With the score tied at 2-2 and one out in the Cardinals' half of the sixth, Tom Herr led off first base. Frank Viola threw to first baseman Kent Hrbek and got Herr in a rundown. Hrbek tossed to Lombardozzi, who ran Herr back towards first base. On this way back to first base, Herr appeared to run into Hrbek which, if interference, would allow him to go to second base safely. However, the first base umpire Lee Weyer called Herr out when Lombardozzi tossed to Viola covering first base. The Cardinals argued that Viola's tag appeared to be late.

The umpire's call enraged Herr and first base coach, Rich Hacker. There is no telling what would have happened if the umpire had made the opposite call in this case. Maybe a clutch-single by Lindeman or Willie McGee would have knocked Herr in, or maybe he would have been left stranded on the bases. In any case, the Twins went on to win Game #7 and the 1987 World Series.

Official National League baseball which has been signed and notated by the late umpire Lee Weyer. In a 1987 Sports Illustrated poll of NL catchers, Weyer was rated the best at calling balls and strikes. The 6 '6" umpire was behind the plate on September 11, 1985, in Cincinnati's Riverfront Stadium when Pete Rose collected his 4,192nd hit to break Ty Cobb's career record, and was the third base umpire in the April 8, 1974 game in which Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's record of 714 career home runs. Weyer also did national television commercials for Miller Beer and Coca Cola. Weyer died 1988 at 51 of a heart attack after working the Cubs 3-2 win over San Francisco.

Authentically autographed 3x5 index card of former major league umpire LEE WEYER (d. 1988). Weyer debuted as an umpire in 1962.
