At Toronto, Jesse Barfield hits the first pinch grand slam in Blue Jay history, connecting in the 8th inning off Boston's Tom Burgmeier.
» July 9, 1985: In the bottom of the third inning of a game between the Blue Jays and the Mariners, Phil Bradley is on second with one out when Gorman Thomas singles to right. Jesse Barfield's throw to Buck Martinez nails Bradley, though Martinez breaks his ankle in the collision. When Thomas tries to take 3B on the play, Martinez' throw sails into LF. Thomas tries to score but George Bell's throw to Martinez beats him. Buck makes the catch and tag while sitting on the ground. Whitt takes over catching and the Jays win in 13 innings, 9–4. The big blow is a grand slam homer by George Bell in the 13th —the first extra inning slam in club history—to break a 4–4 tie.
» April 30, 1989: The Yankees trade 23-year-old lefthander Al Leiter to the Blue Jays for OF Jesse Barfield.
» July 1, 1990: Yankees Andy Hawkins throws the season's 6th no-hitter, but still loses 4–0 to the White Sox. With two out in the bottom of the 8th, New York's Mike Blowers misplays Sosa's routine grounder for an error, and Hawkins walks two to load the bases. Outfielders Jim Leyritz and Jesse Barfield drop back-to-back fly balls to allow all four runs to score. Barfield loses Ivan Calderon's fly ball in the sun and the ball bounces off his mitt. Ken Johnson in 1964 was the last pitcher to lose a no-hitter.
» August 14, 1990: California posts a 9–5 win over the Yankees with the winning margin coming on an inside-the-park grand slam by Luis Polonia. Yankee RF Jesse Barfield misses a shoe string catch and his leisurely pursuit of the ball allows Polonia to score. Jim Abbott is the winner. Barfield will misplay another drive into an 4-run IPHR in two weeks.
» September 1, 1990: The 3rd inside-the-park grand slam of the season is hit by Boston's Mike Greenwell off Greg Cadaret, as the Red Sox beat New York 15–1. Greenwell's grounder eludes Jesse Barfield in the RF corner: Barfield's shoetop miss on August 14 gave Polonia his slam. The last season with three inside-the-park slams? 1947. Greenwell's only other inside-the-park slam was also off Cadaret. Boston jumps on Yankee starter Andy Hawkins who lasted 1/3 of an inning. Hawkins has now pitched a total of one inning in three starts at Fenway Park and given up 18 runs (ERA 162.00).
» June 29, 1991:
The visiting Yankees score three in the 9th off Dan Plesac to beat Milwaukee, 9–8. Kevin Maas and Jesse Barfield homer for the Bombers. Teddy Higuera (3–2), in the first year of a $13 million, 4-year contract pitches seven innings, allowing three runs. Higuera, who started the year on the DL, will go on the DL again when a significant tear to his rotary cuff is discovered. This is his last ML appearance.
