George Brett, center, of the Kansas City Royals is restrained by umpire Joe Brinkman after his bat, held by umpire Tim McClelland, was ruled illegal because of pine tar beyond the legal limit on the handle in this July 24, 1983 photo at Yankee Stadium in New York. Brett hit a home run that would have won the game against the Yankees, but was instead called out, the Yanks winning 4-3. Royals manager Dick Howser, left, argues on his teams behalf.
