The JOBC Contest

On this day in 1908 future Cub Billy Jurges was born. He played in three World Series for the Cubs, but is best remembered for something that happened to him off the field on July 6, 1932. What was it?

The first person that e-mails me the correct answer at will win a commemorative Greg Maddux 3000th strikeout scorecard, an autographed copy of the excellent baseball novel "The Pitch" (by Hank Owens), plus a t-shirt from the Just One Bad Century catalog.

UPDATE: We have a winner of this week's contest! Kel Kissamis of Hampshire was first one to get through on my e-mail, and he's the big winner. He knew that Billy Jurges was shot by a stalker, and wins the prize this week. (Read all about that story here) We'll have another contest next week.
