1945 Only 281 patrons are in attendance at Crosley Field to watch the hometown Reds beat New York, 3-2. The Thursday crowd will be the smallest gathering of fans during the 58-year history of the Cincinnati ballpark.
1960 In the top of the fifth inning at Crosley Field, Danny Murphy hits a two-out, three-run home run in an 8-6 loss to the Reds. The 18 year-old right-fielder becomes the youngest Cubs player ever to homer.
1969 Bobby Bonds, with his first-inning two-run homer in the Giants' 6-4 defeat to the Reds at Candlestick Park, becomes the fourth player in major league history to steal at least 30 bases and hit at least thirty home runs in the same season. The other members of the 30/30 club are Ken Williams (1922-Browns), Willie Mays (1956 & 1957-Giants), and Hank Aaron (1963-Braves).
1998 Sammy Sosa eclipses a National League record for the most home runs hit at one park by one player set by Ted Kluszewski when he hits his 35th Wrigley Field round-tripper, surpassing the former Reds first baseman's total at Crosley Field in 1954. The Cubs right fielder's 62nd of the season ties Mark McGwire for the league's lead in their historic home run race.
