METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE JULY 20, 1995 GAME:Bob P
March 7, 2004
Brett Butler had three singles and a home run in this Mets loss. Starting three games ago and ending tonight, Butler had 15 hits over four games, one shy of the record of 16 set by Brooklyn's Milt Stock in 1925. Stock was an infielder who played in the teens and early-mid 1920s.
According to baseballlibrary.com, Stock is probably best remembered by old-time Dodger fans not for this feat, but for the fact that he was the Dodgers' third base coach in 1950. On the last day of the 1950 season, the Dodgers, one game out of first, blew a chance for the pennant when Brooklyn's Cal Abrams was thrown out at the plate by Phillies outfielder Richie Ashburn in the ninth inning of a tie game. Stock was the coach who waved Abrams home. He was fired several days later and never again coached in the majors.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
