Betcha thought I'd mention my buddy David but at this point I'm 32, married and at the game with my third wife. (Don't ask.) Don Carman is throwing whiffle balls all night and a few rockets left the park. This was the first big year of the home run with 31 guys (or so) drilling 30 or more dingers. Guys like Wade Boggs (24) Larry Sheets (31) were hitting them out at will. At any rate, Ralphy Santana gets up late in the game and I said to my wife, "If he hits one out, we're outta here." Sure enough, the powerful Santana slams one into the night as we begin our exit to return home to Kew Garden Hills.
