Spring Training for the Texas Rangers is rocked when second baseman Lenny Randle attacks manager Frank Lucchesi before an exhibition game against the Minnesota Twins in Orlando. Lucchesi suffers a broken jaw and a concussion. Randle had been feuding all spring with the Rangers’ manager, who appeared ready to hand the job at second base to rookie Bump Wills. Lenny Randle would be suspended for 30 days and traded to the New York Mets.
