Dave Winfield

On this date in 1983 while warming up before the 5th inning of a Yankees game with the Blue Jays at Toronto Exhibition Stadium, Dave Winfield hits and kills a seagull with a thrown ball. He is charged with animal cruelty however the charges are later dropped.

"They say he hit the gull on purpose. They wouldn't say that if they'd seen the throws he'd been making all year. It's the first time he's hit the cut-off man all year." - Billy Martin
