During a 1982 exhibition game against the San Diego Padres, McCatty stepped to the plate wielding a toy 15-inch bat but was refused by umpire Jim Quick to hit. McCatty was instructed by A's manager Billy Martin, who was furious that the designated hitter rule was not allowed in National League ballparks, to use the toy bat as a protest.
