Gene Richards from the Chronology
Sep 26, 1982 - Down 1-0 to the Braves in the 3rd Padres OF Gene Richards hits a long fly ball down the LF line off Rick Camp that Terry Harper spears at the last second. But Harper's momentum carries him out of bounds where he hits the railing dropping the ball. Meanwhile the speedy Richards circles the bases. The ump rules Harper did not hold the ball long enough for an out and he is charged with a 4-base error (later overruled by the League office to an inside-the-park HR for Richards). The Padres win the game 3-2.
Sep 25, 1980 - San Diego's Jerry Mumphrey steals his 50th base of the season in a 5-3 loss to the Reds making the Padres the first team in major-league history to have 3 players with 50 steals in the same season-Mumphrey Ozzie Smith and Gene Richards.
Jul 26, 1977 - Padres rookie Gene Richards ties the NL record with 6 hits in an extra-inning contest.
