1966 After tying Jimmie Foxx yesterday for most career home runs hit by a right-handed batter, Giants slugger Willie Mays passes 'Double X' with his 535th homer. The San Francisco center fielder now takes over second place on the all-time list, trailing only Babe Ruth's 714.
1973 At Shea Stadium, 42 year-old Willie Mays hits his 660th and final home run of his career off Cincinnati southpaw Don Gullett. The Mets first baseman, who played 21 seasons roaming the outfield for the Giants before coming home to New York last season, is third on the all-time home run career list behind Babe Ruth (714) and Hank Aaron (703).
1992 Kevin Gross, retiring 22 of the final 23 batters he faces on his wife's birthday, no-hits the Giants at Dodger Stadium, 2-0. The LA right-hander's no-no averts the team from being swept in a four-game series at home against the Giants for the first time in 69 years.
