YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN THERE!!!

1923 Boston’s Howard Ehmke beats the Athletics, 4 – 0, without allowing a hit. Well he did allow a hit – but Slim Harris missed first base on what should have been a double.

1950 Hoot Evers drives in six, hits for the cycle, and even drives in the game tying run to force the game into extra innings. Howveer, nobody won – it ended tied at 13 after ten innings.

1971 Amos Otis is the first player in 44 years to steal six bases in a game.

1993 Cardinal Mark Whiten hits four homers and drives in twelve in the second game of a double header against Cincinnati – both tying existing major league records.
