And Joe West is still employed as an MLB umpire 29 years later.

Yeah I was just about to mention that too!  That's a Hall of Fame of bad umpiring crew going on there.  Just need CB Bucknor and Angel Hernandez to round it all out.

Mike Winters and Tom Hallion rounded out the umpiring crew.

All three of the "Nasty Boys" appeared for the Reds.
Les Lancaster started and Paul Assenmacher relieved for the Cubs.

Luis Quinones was the one that the Phillies tried to pawn off on us instead of Sandberg.

West's motion in ejecting Dawson looks like he's about to throw a haymaker at him.

Not to excuse everything Dawson did, but still.

Are umpires required to point away from the player when ejecting people nowadays?

43 years ago, the New York blackout shut the lights at Shea Stadium during the Mets-Cubs game:

The game was completed on September 16 with the Cubs winning 5-2.

Several places where the article refers to Mitre as a "star".

His career record is 13-30 with a 5.21 ERA.
