1956 Dale Long's eighth-inning Forbes Field's two-run round-tripper against Chicago is the first in a string of eight consecutive games in which the Pirates' first baseman will homer. The Adam, MA native's major league mark will also be accomplished by Don Mattingly (Yankees, 1987) and Ken Griffey Jr. (Mariners, 1993).
1994 The first 'Jay Buhner Buzz Cut Night', which will become a very popular recurring promotion, is held at the Kingdome. Mariners fans, willing to have their heads shaved to emulate the team's right fielder, who plays an active role by encouraging fans to participate and giving a few haircuts himself, receive free admission to seats in right field to cheer on 'Bone'.
