Three Stooges Day at The Ballpark

"Listen here, Mr. Ticket-Taker, we didn't come to the ballpark today to get bopped on the head as soon as we got here! - You got that?"

“Listen here, Mr. Ticket-Taker, we didn’t come to the ballpark today to get bopped on the head as soon as we got here! – You got that, buddy?”

FAN MAKES ERROR; SLUGS TICKET MAN WHEN HIT BY FOUL

PAMPA, Tex., July 4 (1949) (AP) – As a Pampa man handed his ticket to a doorman at the Clovis-Pampa baseball game here last night, a foul ball hit him on the head.

He thought the ticket taker had hit him. He slugged the ticket taker. Two hits, no runs, one error.
