FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»July 30, 1976:
In a Southern Association game in Memphis, the Chick's Art Gardner hits a 3rd inning shot off the CF wall and, while Syracuse OF Rick Bladt searches for the ball, Gardner circles the bases for an inside-the-park home run. When Bladt can't find the ball, the umpires rule the hit is only a double.
