Tom Lynch

Tom Lynch was widely admired for his honesty and integrity in an era when umpires were increasingly the target of player rowdiness and fan violence. But he could be pushed past his limits. On August 6, 1897, he got into a fistfight with Baltimore’s Jack Doyle. (BOSTON POST, 6 AUGUST 1897)
