Davey Nelson from the Texas Rangers.  Enjoy the tale that Tom Grieve remembers from 1974.


From the article
Quote
[Ranger broadcaster and former outfielder Tom] Grieve also warmly remembered an incident in 1974 in which he said Nelson tricked Milwaukee's Bob Coluccio into an out.

"Coluccio slid into second and there was dirt on the big," Grieve said. "Davey said, hey, let me clean the bag off and Coluccio took his hand off. Davey tagged him out. They nearly got into a fight right there."
