July 14, 1957

File this under the heading, “It Happens to the Best of Organizations.”

Yankees prospects Norm Siebern and Ryne Duren, an outfielder and pitcher for the Yankees' Triple A Denver Bears, were arrested in Louisville and charged with assault and disorderly conduct after a scuffle with a nightclub band leader. They were paroled to Denver manager Ralph Houk.

The Major likely had a sit-down with the boys after freeing them from jail.

This was just two months after six Yankees were involved in a brawl at New York's Copacabana. Hank Bauer was the only one arrested, all six paid fines of between $500-$1,000.

Siebern played for the 1967 Red Sox. Duren was best known for being able to throw a fastball through a brick wall but, wearing Coke-bottle glasses, let batter believe he had no idea where it was headed.
