On this date in 1996, after getting ejected for arguing a strike call in the 1st inning of a game with the Blue Jays, Orioles Roberto Alomar spits in the face of umpire John Hirschbeck.
"I used to respect him a lot. He had problems with his family when his son died - I know that's something real tough in life - but after that he just changed, personality-wise. He just got real bitter." - Alomar shortly after the incident on Hirschbeck
