Re: Pittsburgh Pirates versus St. Louis Cardinals - September 3, 1973 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

Was at this double-header with my Dad. Three Rivers went crazy after Richie Hebner's inside - the - park home run in the bottom of the 13th to win the first game. When they interviewed him on KDKA's evening news, he said, "I was runnin' around the bases like a cop was chasing me."

This was my first Tiger game. My dad took me I was 7 years old. I rmember it like it was yesterday. The green of the grass,the white of the uniforms and the smell of hotdogs in the air. The Mick even Homered in the 5th,4 rows below where I was sitting in left. I was hooked !

Re: New York Yankees versus Cleveland Indians - July 16, 1959 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

From Boston Globe of July 17, 1959. " Mantle then put it away with two out after Bobby Richardson singled in the 10th, hitting his first home run since June 23..."

As you say, all the sources show that it was Richardson hitting the single. Kubek had one single that day, but was not on base when Mantle hit his home run. Have you checked the New York Times historical archives?

Re: New York Yankees versus Cleveland Indians - July 16, 1959 - Regular Season Lineup and other Game Information

I remember this game like it was yesterday. It was the first time I went to Yankee Stadium. I was 10 years old. In the 10th inning I left my seat and walked to the front railing close to home plate on the first base side. I stood there and watched the game. I was as close as you can get to home plate. Nobody bothered me probably because I was so young. Here's my problem: I have a vivid memory of Tony Kubek hitting a single and being on first prior to Mantle's home run that ended the game. However all the accounts of the game have Bobby Richardson hitting the single before Mantle's homer. I was a yankee fan since the age of eight and knew the players well. Kubek batted left and Richardson right plus Kubek was taller. I certainly could not mistake one for the other. I am very puzzled by this. I can't believe my memory could be faulty since it has always been vivid in my mind since that day. Could you help?

Re: Most Consecutive At-Bats with a Hit

You're right. Pinky Higgins did get 12 consecutive hits in 1938. However, my post was referring to consecutive hits without a base on balls. Therefore, 12 consecutive hits in 12 appearances. I will correct this in the post. Thank you.

Re: A New York Memory

To Sara: We have a couple of things in common. I also sat in the upper deck behind the plate. And what a bargain it was (especially for double-headers), only $1.25. For you it was just a quarter on Ladies Day. I remember Mel Allen saying "Mom and daughter each for a quarter". And they were great seats. When there were small crowds you could sit in the upper deck box seats. And my brother also got an Andy Carey foul ball.
