"Covington police had to escort Umpire H. H. Koester from the city baseball diamond at
Fifteenth and Eastern avenue, Sunday afternoon, following a game between the Gold Medal
Oils and Crescent Springs, which the Oils won 8-5 under protest. The followers of Crescent
Springs were infuriated over several decisions made by Koester during the game and they were
waiting for him outside the field after the game. The police came to his rescue, however, and escorted him from the scene."
The Times-Star, Monday October 2, 1933
