The Baltimore Orioles forfeit a game to the Toronto Blue Jays at Exhibition Stadium when Manager Earl Weaver pulls his team off the field and refuses to return. On a rainy night in Toronto, Weaver was concerned about a tarp covering the bullpen mound the foul territory when he pulled his team off the field trailing 4-0 in the fifth inning. After waiting 15 minutes, Umpire Marty Springstead calls the game a win for Toronto.
