See the source imageNow this didn’t happen in Denver where you might expect it. Nope. But it did happen in Milwaukee.

In a contest delayed 12 minutes by snow on May 4, 1954, the Braves, thanks to Warren Spahn’s six-hitter, move out of last place. The Braves beat the Pirates and former teammate Max Surkont, 6-1.

I guess the fans knew the forecast. Only 12,383 brave souls showed up at County Stadium.

Eddie Mathews had a great day with 2 runs scored.

The temperature in Milwaukee is reported to have dropped 37 degrees during the game.

Yikes!

Here is the lineup for the day.
