"I know the guys are down, but I'm not sure they're angry enough," said Harding Peterson, the executive vice-president of the Pirates (0-7), who fell into the cellar. The Phillies—at least Manager Dallas Green—were plenty angry, but it didn't help. "For your language and actions, including making physical contact with and removing the hat and kicking same of Umpire Steve Fields...you are hereby suspended for five games...and fined $1,000." That was the telegram Green received from the league office after disputing a call by Fields during a game the Phillies (1-6) took from the Braves 7-5 on Manny Trillo's homer in the 13th.
