1937: Augie Galan becomes the first National Leaguer to hit a homer from each side of the plate. The switch-hitter's pair of round-trippers helps the Cubs beat the Dodgers, 11-2.

1961: The Orioles and the Angels set a major league record by using 16 pitchers, eight by each side. Ron Hansen's 14th-inning homer gives Baltimore the 9-8 victory at L.A.'s Wrigley Field.

1968: In his third at-bat, Bobby Bonds hits a grand slam in his first major league game off Dodger John Purdin. The 22-year old Giant outfielder joins Philadelphia National pitcher Bill Duggelby (1898 - first at-bat) as the only other player to hit a base-loaded home run in his major league debut.

1976: Toby Harrah becomes the first shortstop in major league history to play in both ends of a twin bill without taking a single fielding chance. The Rangers' infielder lack of activity at Arlington Stadium isn't due to a lack of hitting as Texas splits the double header, winning the opener 8-4 before dropping the nightcap to the White Sox, 14-9.
