At the time of my home run, two American League batters were hitting at the .400 mark or better ... and I was a career .312 hitter for the Yanks.

    The home run came in the bottom of the eleventh inning against the White Sox off losing pitcher Joe Heving for a 8- 7 Yankee win. Ben Chapman now had a .333 batting average on the season. Heinie Manush was leading the American League with a .411 average and Charlie Gehringer was seccond in the league with a .400 average.

    Chapman's baseball career began with the Yankees in 1930. He now had 777 hits in 2487 career at-bats - and was sporting a .312 career average.

    You know, it may look like I gave up a walk-off home run in my career, but turns out I didn't. The walk-off home run that was supposedly hit off me came in the tenth inning of a game, and was hit by a really good rookie outfielder that I was facing for the very first time. He was the only batter I pitched to in the game. So what happened you're probably asking yourself? What about this walk-off home run? What follows is the scoop on the game:

    After the ninth inning, when the home team we were playing rallied with four runs to tie the score, our Manager announced to umpire Ziggy Sears that we were playing the game under protest. He argued that Dusty's drive in the sixth against the edge of the pavilion roof in deep right center, which went for a triple, should have been ruled a homer. With that homer our lead in the game would of been 6- 1 instead of 5- 1. The game was now tied 5- 5 in the ninth, instead of us winning 6- 5. Extra innings ... and the "walk-off" home run I give up ends the game.

    Now, when you look in the current day record books you'll find that Dusty did wind-up getting credit for that home run that our manager argued that he had hit. Of course this also meant he got credit for that run he had scored in the game, by hitting the home run, which gave us 6 runs scored earlier in the game instead of 5. Now here is where the record books show something else. The record books also show the rookie that hit the home run off of me ... still got himself a walk-off home run in the game, instead of just a regular homer, giving him a good bunch of the walk-off type in his HOF career. As for me ... well ... you know what the record books say!

    Did Stan the man take you deep in that game? Are you Dick Errickson? I think I'm wrong because some of the details don't match uyou description but I'll throw it out there anyway.

    In a wild game that saw the Yankees give up 4 runs in the top of the ninth but then score 3 in the bottom half to send the game to extra's I batted in the last inning. The opposition had taken the lead again in the top of that inning but our third basemen tied the game with two outs. Then I singled to right to win the game. Thus I became the first Yankees RF to have a walk off hit in the park the game was played at. It was a regular season game.

    I get no respect. On the day I hit my 200th career home run to win a game, 8- 4, the newspapers said, "That the score rose to such proportions was due to a ponderous home run over the right field barrier by ancient ... me ... with the bases crowded to full capacity."

    What's a guy gotta do? I did win four home run titles in my career.

    You are Lou Piniella, and your walk-off hit in Shea Stadium on July 12, 1975 was one of the very few high points in an otherwise dismal year for you. You battled an inner ear infection all season, playing only 74 games and ending up with a most un-Piniella-like line: .196/.262/.226.

    I had high hopes for the 1975 Yankees. Over the previous couple of years they had picked up Nettles and Chambliss, and for that season they added Catfish Hunter and Bobby Bonds. Their pitching was pretty good, and the outfield/DH spots should have been a strength - Elliott Maddox, Roy White, Bonds and Piniella. But Piniella was a washout that year, and Maddox's season ended when he hurt his knee in June. White and Bonds were banged up at the same time, and the Yankees got so desperate that one day they had a starting outfield of Thurman Munson, Kerry Dineen and Rick Dempsey. They still managed to stay in the race until mid-July, but that was it.

    Who knows, if they'd stayed healthy, I might not have had to endure the World Series I hated more than any other.

    You are partialy correct. Piniella got the hit but it was not at Shea Stadium. Can you guess where he got it.

    As for the 1975 season. Yankees were in first place in June when the entire outfield was hurt in the same week. Biggest loss was Bonds who was among the league leaders in HRs and RBI's when he hurt his leg in Chicago. Things got so bad that in a game at Shea Stadium
    the Yankees started two catchers in the corner OF positions with Kerry Dineen in CF. Hunter pitched a shutout that day.

    OK, I got it. The game was suspended after 14 innings because of the AL's old 1AM curfew. They were going to complete it the next day at Shea, but that was rained out. Since it was the Twins' last trip to NY for the season, they finished the game a week later in Minnesota. I will take your word for the fact that it was the first walk-off hit by a Yankee RF in the 15 years that the Twins had played at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington.

    I would argue that Maddox was a greater loss than Bonds. Bonds was a much better hitter, obviously , but he was only out for a week, while Maddox was out for the rest of the season. Maddox was having a good offensive season, as he had the year before; he was also the key to their outfield defense, because he was their only real center fielder, and a darn good one. When Bonds came back they put him in center field, but despite his speed, he wasn't really a center fielder. When Billy Martin came on board in August, he hated Bonds, and mostly played Rick Bladt and Rich Coggins in CF the rest of the way. Losing Maddox created a big hole, one that they solved the following year when they traded Bonds.

    You are correct. I was there for the Shea part of the game and I actually knew someone who went to Minnesota for the game's completion.

    I agree that Maddox was a big loss and his injury was such a freak thing. He blew his leg out catching a routine fly ball at Shea in a game the Yankees had a big lead in.
    I believe Bonds was out for more than a week and when he came back he was not the same player as before the injury. Even with the injuries the Yankees stayed in the race until late July when a doubleheader shutout loss to the Red Sox killed them. I can still remember Fred Lynn making an impossible catch off a Nettles line drive that would have won the first game of that DH for the Yankees.
    "Catfish" Hunter was unreal that season for the Yankees.

    You're essentially right about the time Bonds missed. He was out for a week, then played RF for one game. But over the following week, he didn't play much - a couple of games as PH, a couple as DH. It was three weeks before he was a full-time outfielder again.

    There wsan't really a dropoff in his hitting, though. .253/.342/.525 before the injury, .281/.394/.505 after. His HR rate went down some, but he still finished 4th in the league; and if he had fewer RBIs, that was probably because they moved him into the leadoff spot.

    You know, it may look like I gave up a walk-off home run in my career, but turns out I didn't. The walk-off home run that was supposedly hit off me came in the tenth inning of a game, and was hit by a really good rookie outfielder that I was facing for the very first time. He was the only batter I pitched to in the game. So what happened you're probably asking yourself? What about this walk-off home run? What follows is the scoop on the game:

    After the ninth inning, when the home team we were playing rallied with four runs to tie the score, our Manager announced to umpire Ziggy Sears that we were playing the game under protest. He argued that Dusty's drive in the sixth against the edge of the pavilion roof in deep right center, which went for a triple, should have been ruled a homer. With that homer our lead in the game would of been 6- 1 instead of 5- 1. The game was now tied 5- 5 in the ninth, instead of us winning 6- 5. Extra innings ... and the "walk-off" home run I give up ends the game.

    Now, when you look in the current day record books you'll find that Dusty did wind-up getting credit for that home run that our manager argued that he had hit. Of course this also meant he got credit for that run he had scored in the game, by hitting the home run, which gave us 6 runs scored earlier in the game instead of 5. Now here is where the record books show something else. The record books also show the rookie that hit the home run off of me ... still got himself a walk-off home run in the game, instead of just a regular homer, giving him a good bunch of the walk-off type in his HOF career. As for me ... well ... you know what the record books say!

    You are Gene Schott. The rookie was Enos Slaughter. Dusty was Dusty Cooke.

    You are the man, Big_E!


    Gene Schott is the pitcher for "Who Am I" #421. He shows a walk-off home run hit against him on May 14. It is the only walk-off hit against him during his career.

    Gene Schott Statistics and History - Baseball-Reference.com


    Enos Slaughter is listed as having 5 walk-off home runs, one being on May 14, 1938. This was the second career home run hit by Slaughter during his HOF career.

    Enos Slaughter Career Home Runs - Baseball-Reference.com


    Dusty Cooke did get credit for a home run - not a triple. The home run is listed as being #23 in his major league career.

    Dusty Cooke Statistics and History - Baseball-Reference.com



    The game is in the books as having been a 7- 7 tie:

    http://www.retrosheet.org/boxesetc/1938/05141938.htm

    CIN N 0 2 0 1 0 3 0 0 0 1 - 7 13 3

    I hit 4 "Inside The Park" HRs in my career. Since this is question #422, I knew a young man and his dad who used to drive that state route to see me play. Who am I?

    His first was hit on the road but 3 of those were hit to CF in Yankee satdium. I wonder how manyof those were aided by the monuments being out there?

    I don't know but I've been watching baseball since 1948 and he is the greatest player I have ever seen. It's just too bad he didn't keep himself in shape and had the bad knees.

    I NEVER saw anyone run to 1st like him and a MLB umpire told my dad that when he umped behind the plate and Mantle swung, it looked like every muscle in his neck were going to pop right through his skin.

    Tripper - a walk off home run could NEVER be hit on the ROAD!!

    I'd guess it had less to do with the monuments themselves than with the distance out there. Hit it over the outfielder's head and it could bounce out there just about forever.
    A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
