BASEBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE MAJORS : He Who Hesitates Loses, Brown Says

September 22, 1993|Associated Press

American League President Bobby Brown, saying Boston Manager Butch Hobson didn't protest in time, Tuesday denied the Red Sox's protest of Saturday's loss to the New York Yankees in which a fan ran on the field in the ninth inning.

Brown, citing league regulation 3.13, said a protest must be filed with the umpire in chief before the next pitched ball.

Boston appeared to have won, 3-1, when Mike Stanley flied out. But third-base umpire Tim Welke had called time when he saw a young fan run on the field before the pitch was delivered. Stanley, given a second chance, singled, as did Wade Boggs. Dion James then walked and Don Mattingly's single gave New York a 4-3 victory.

"I guess I (messed) up," Hobson said Tuesday night.
