Billy Clingman from the Chronology
Sep 2, 1899 - Louisville defeats visiting Washington 25-4 at Eclipse Park. There are 8 HRs in the game including 6 by Louisville. All 6 are hit by different players (Dummy Hoy Mike Kelley Tommy Leach Fred Clarke Claude Ritchey Billy Clingman) a ML record that will not be matched until the 2000 season. Kelley and Leach's drives are inside-the-park HRs according to Dave Vincent. Because of the small attendance Louisville President Barney Dreyfuss will decide to transfer the last 14 home games to the opponents' grounds.
Aug 2, 1896 - Still Bill Hill's 2-hitter helps Louisville edge Chicago 2-1. In the 6th inning Billy Clingman in a failed attempt to score the game's first run spikes Chicago C Tim Donahue. Donahue attempts to retaliate by throwing the ball at Clingman but is prevented from doing so. Chicago's George Decker fails to hit safely ending his 26-game hit streak.
