Dave Nelson from the Chronology
Jun 12, 1984 - White Sox 1B Coach Dave Nelson declares his love. At the end of the bottom of the 5th in a 6-1 loss to the Angels Nelson trots out to the coaching box as Diamond Vision flashes the message "Will you marry me?" Nelson then walks over his fiancee Kathy Gutknecht sitting in the first base box and presents her with a ring.
Aug 30, 1974 - The Rangers Dave Nelson steals 2B 3B and home in the first inning only the 3rd such performance in the major leagues since 1928 but it's not enough as Texas loses to Cleveland 7-3.
Aug 8, 1973 - Against Texas Yankee starter Fritz Peterson injures himself fielding a bunt single by leadoff hitter Dave Nelson and he is replaced by Fred Beane. Beane pitches 9 innings allowing 4 hits and winning 3-2 on Gene Michaels 2-out single in the 9th off starter Jim Merritt.
Jul 30, 1968 - In the first inning Washington SS Ron Hansen turns the 8th unassisted triple play in ML history and the first in 41 years. Cleveland's Joe Azcue hits a liner to Hansen who steps on 2B to double Dave Nelson and tags Russ Snyder sliding into 2B for the 3rd out. Hansen's effort is not enough as Washington loses 10-1.
