After beating the NY Giants in 1908 for the pennant, New York fans took the field and beat the Cubs and threatened to blow up their train back to Chicago.

Rate this fact:

Chance is attacked, his neck cartilage torn. Tinker, Sheckard and Howard are hit with flying debris. Jack Pfiester's shoulder is slashed. Evers gets away untouched. An Irish gang was hired to protect him (by his cousin). The next day they get death threats at their hotel -- someone says their train back to Chicago will blow up.
