August 8, 1961:
In the midst of a historic losing streak, tensions were high in Philadelphia. During the second game of a doubleheader against the Pirates, a brawl broke out in the sixth inning. The reason for the benches clearing has seemingly been lost, but the newswire noted that the game resumed only after police intervention. The remainder of the game was played under protest, and resulted in something the Phillies had become more than familiar with: a loss.
