Courtesy of The Twins Almanac on the Twitter (@TwinsAlmanac)... On this day in Minnesota Twins history, pitcher Joe Niekro is ejected from the game by umpire Tim Tschida for having a nail file and sandpaper in his pocket while on the mound. He was subsequently suspended ten games by the American League. The video of Niekro emptying his pockets then putting his hands in the air was infamous as a "blooper" reel at the time.
