1936 Joe DiMaggio becomes the first Yankee and fifth player in major league history to hit two home runs in one inning. The 21 year-old rookie outfielder’s homers come in the fifth frame in an 18-11 trouncing of the White Sox at Comiskey Park.
1977 After hitting what appears to be a three-run homer in the third inning at Metropolitan Stadium, Ralph Garr is called out for passing teammate Jim Essian, who waited at first base to make sure the ball cleared the fence. The White Sox outfielder known as the Road Runner is awarded a two-run single, but the mistake proves costly when Chicago loses the game in Minnesota, 7-6.
