"A Sad Part of History"

San Francisco Giants pitcher Juan Marichal (27) swings a bat at Los Angeles Dodgers catcher John Roseboro in the third inning at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, Calif., on Aug. 22, 1965, when Marichal apparently felt Roseboro had thrown too close to his head. Dodgers pitcher Sandy Koufax, rear, tries to break up the fight. Roseboro died after a lengthy illness, a family spokeswoman said Monday, Aug. 19, 2002. He was 69.
