Junior World Series
The Junior World Series (previously the Little World Series) had been played between the champions of the American Association and Eastern/International League off and on since 1903.  The 1932 International League champions were the Newark Bears, a powerful farm team of the New York Yankees.  The Bears' lineup included Dixie Walker, Red Rolfe, Marv Owen, Jesse Hill, Charlie Hargreaves, and Jack Saltzgaver, and Johnny Neun.  The pitching staff was led by Don Brennan.  Larry Goetz of the American Association was to be one of the umpires, but he became ill after the regular season and was replaced by Charley Johnson.  George Johnson was also replaced, by Jeff Pfeffer.  The International League umpires were Jack Carroll and Bill Summers.
Tu 9/27 at Newark Bears L 11-0 0-1 LP-Ryan, who was knocked out in the fourth.  Bears get 16 hits off Ryan, Vangilder, Benton, and Hill.  Brennan shuts the Millers out on 4 hits.   Hargreaves and Owen homer for Newark.
W 9/28 at Newark W 3-2 1-1 Petty pitches 15-hitter and strikes out 11, beating Harry Holsclaw.  Ruble triples in the 6th to drive in Hauser with the tying run, then comes home on Rice's single for the winning run.
F 10/2 at Newark W 2-1 (10) 2-1 Henry beats Pete Jablonowski (later Pete Appleton) as both pitchers go the distance.  Hauser homers to right with 2 out in the top of the 7th, and Hargreaves leads off the bottom of the inning with a home run to tie the game.  Ganzel leads off the 10th with a home run.
Su 10/2 Newark L 5-2 2-2 Brennan, with a 14-hitter, beats Day.  Owen and Saltzgaver homer for Newark.

Tu 10/4 Newark, cold
W 10/5 Newark L 12-9 2-3 Johnny Murphy beats Vangilder.  Helped by Hauser's 1st-inning home run, the Millers build an 8-3 lead.  Newark scores 2 in the 7th and 3 in the 8th to tie the game.  In the 9th Saltzgaver walks and goes to third on a single by Hargreaves.  With 2 out, Neun slices a liner to left-center that Rice comes up with, setting off the Play of Six Decisions.
Play of Six Decisions: Rice dived for Neun's liner and slid on the ground.  Third-base umpire Johnston signaled out, and second-base umpire Carroll followed with an out signal.  Newark manager Al Mamaux came out and argued.  The umpires, joined by plate-umpire Summers and first-base umpire Pfeffer, huddled and reversed their decision, saying Rice had not caught the ball cleanly, which allowed the go-ahead run to score. 
  
From On to Nicollet:  "Out came Donie Bush, demanding an explanation.  Again, the arbiters called an impromptu conference, and, again, they came out with a different decision, ruling once again that Rice had caught the ball, which brought an encore performance by Mamaux.  The scene continued—the men in blue listening to the remonstrations of the offended manager, huddling and emerging from their meeting with a decision opposite of their previous call—until a total of six decisions had been made and the game had been delayed more than forty minutes.  Bush finally ended the rhubarb by lodging a formal protest of the game.  Unfortunately for Minneapolis, the committee that would rule on the protest was made up of an equal number of representatives of the American Association and International League.  Thus the vote ended in a partisan deadlock; as a result, the Millers’ protest was disallowed, and the Bears 12-9 victory was allowed to stand."  After the game resumed, Rolfe hit a 3-run homer.  The Millers scored 1 in the last of the 9th but lost 12-9.
Th 10/6 Newark L 7-8 2-3 WP-George Miner.  LP-Henry.  Minneapolis, backed by home runs by Hauser and Mowry, carries a 7-5 lead into the 9th.  With one out, Hill walks and scores on Woody Jensen's triple.  Marv Owen follows with a home run over the right-field fence.
