Kevin Maas from the Chronology
Oct 7, 2001 - The Giants beat the Dodgers 2-1 as Barry Bonds extends his ML record with his 73rd HR of the season. He will finish the year with a slugging percentage of .863 to break Babe Ruth's all-time single-season record. Bonds will have 411 total bases 3rd in the NL behind Gonzalez and Sosa.

Jun 11, 1993 - The Yankees-Brewers game at County Stadium is interrupted by some 100 sea gulls who swoop down onto the field apparently in search of moths hatching in the infield and outfield grass. The Yankees eventually win the game by a score of 5-4 winning in the 9th on a two-run pinch homer by Kevin Maas. While no players or seagulls are hurt Wade Boggs called the situation "terribly dangerous. The seagulls will return for tomorrow night's game but the Brewers will be prepared for the birds. Gus the wonder dog on loan from the Wisconsin waterfowl association will keep them away.
Jul 24, 1991 - In a game against the Mariners the Yankees score 3 runs on a ground ball hit back to the pitcher. With runners on 2nd and 3rd and one out in the 4th Pat Kelly hits a comebacker to Erik Hanson. The Seattle hurler traps Kevin Maas in a rundown between 3rd and home but Maas scores when 3B Edgar Martinez's throw hits him in the back. The ball rolls up the 1st base line in foul territory where it is recovered by C Dave Cochrane. Cochrane throws home to head off Alvaro Espinoza who is also attempting to score. The throw goes into the Mariners' dugout allowing Espinoza and Kelly to cross the plate with the 2nd and 3rd runs.
