Did you know?: During a game that carried into the dusk hours, Clarkson once pitched a lemon to the plate to persuade the umpire, Jack Kerins to call the game due to darkness. Kerins called the lemon a strike, and when shown by Boston’s catcher that he had called a lemon a strike, Kerins finally called the game.

'Black Bart' Strikes Again!

Once again, The Clarkson Gazette brings you some hard hitting news from the world of Baseball. Our investigative reporter, known only as Night Hawk, brings us some explosive news regarding the renegade owner of the Timebombs:
Late on the evening of Aug 18th, just hours after the Boston Brown Sox defeated the Tacoma Timebombs for the Clarkson World Series, Boston PD was called to the scene of a disturbance outside Fenway Park.

In a scene straight out of a teenage rebellion flick, the front doors of the celebrated baseball park had been smashed in. After investigating the scene a man was arrested and it was discovered that the man was none other than Tacoma Timebombs owner Bart Barton!

Barton is no stranger to the spotlight, as after he moved the team from Scranton to Tacoma, a story surfaced that reported the flamboyant owner had struck and broke the jaw of a Scranton city counselor as he accompanied the counselor`s 22 year old daughter to a concert.

As of press time no details have been released by Boston PD but my source in the department tells me Barton had thrown his drink and a sizable rock through the front doors of Fenway. When he was arrested he was allegedly relieving himself on the side of a building on Yawkey Way.
My source tells me that after some questioning it was revealed by Barton, who is also known by the moniker Black Bart, that he had been drinking quite heavily in his limo which was parked in the parking lot just off Lansdowne Street. My source also revealed that Boston PD will be seeking charges and fully expect Barton to spend some time in county jail.

One must wonder just how long the league will continue to tolerate the behavior of this wealthy Texas oilman who has a seemingly very big drinking problem.

No one in the Brown Sox organization would comment on the story and no one in the Tacoma Timebombs could be reached. I guess the legacy that is Bart`Black Bart` Barton just continues to grow.
