Barry Latman from the Chronology
Jun 13, 1967 - Willie Mays the all-time leader in extra inning homers belts a grand slam off Astros P Barry Latman in the 10th to power the Giants to a 6-2 win. For Willie it is his 19th in extra frames and his first grand slam.
Jul 31, 1963 - The Indians become the first AL club to hit 4 straight HRs. Number 8 hitter Woody Held begins with a 2-out blast off Paul Foytack Pitcher Pedro Ramos follows with his 2nd of the game Tito Francona makes it 3 straight and rookie SS Larry Brown's first ML 4-bagger finishes the string. Foytack sets a dubious ML record-the only pitcher to give up 4 straight HRs and there won't be another reliever who surrenders 4 in an inning until Embree in 2001. The Indians win 9-5 in the second of 2 with the Angels. Fred Whitfield who has a grand slam in game 2 hits a solo homer in game 1 off Newman for the only score. Barry Latman is the winner.
Jul 18, 1962 - Minnesota is the first 20th-century club to hit 2 grand slams in one inning when Bob Allison and Harmon Killebrew connect in a team-record 11-run first inning against Cleveland. Barry Latman and Jim Perry serve the grand gophers. The Twins coast home 14-3.
Apr 18, 1960 - Trader Lane continues to swap sending Cleveland favorite Herb Score a lefty is sent to the White Sox for righty Barry Latman. Score and Colavito traded 3 days ago were the last two players to pre-date Lane's arrival in Cleveland.
