The Baltimore Terrapins had a game protest upheld by league president Jim Gilmore. On June 19th, 1915 in Baltimore, player/manager Otto Knabe protested the game against the Chicago Whales in the first inning of an 8-1 Whales victory. The dispute resulted when "Umpire Johnstone permitted a Chicago player to go to the bench directly from third, and then score after a batter struck out with the bases filled and one out. The third strike had gotten away from Catcher Owens, who recovered the ball and threw to third, the Chicago player running direct from the bench to the plate. He had gone to the bench from the field under the impression that he was forced". The game was ordered to be played over.
