On August 2, 1905, Honus Wagner was called out on a close play at 1st base by umpire George Bausewine. Wagner showed his displeasure for the call by throwing a baseball near Bausewine during warmups for the next inning. Bausewine then ejected Wagner who was later suspended for 3 games and fined $40 by League President Harry Pulliam. It was Wagner's 3rd suspension of the season.

What is unique about George Bausewine is that he played MLB for 1 season an umpired MLB for 1 season. He played in 1889 for the Philadelphia Athletics and umpired in 1905.
