Gossage hit North leading off the game for the A's and (coincidence?) the White Sox leadoff hitter Pat Kelly was hit leading off the game in the top of the first. Like Bumbry, North was a fast centerfielder who happened to be black, so perhaps Goose has confused them. I couldn't see anything happening in the preceeding game's box score that might have precipitated this, but if he thought Bosman tried to hit Pat Kelly, I can see the Goose getting revenge quickly.
