FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»May 26, 1929: Two pinch hitters supply the holiday fireworks: Les Bell for the Braves, off Carl Hubbell, and Pat Crawford for the Giants, off Socks Seibold, hit grand slams in New York's 15–8 victory. New York plates nine runs in the 6th inning to break a 2–2 tie.
»September 10, 1932: Dodger OF Johnny Frederick hits his record 6th pinch-hit home run of the season. It is a dramatic 9th-inning, 2-run shot that beats Burleigh Grimes and the Cubs, 4–3. Frederick's six pinch-hit home runs doubles the previous record of three held by Ham Hyatt in 1913, Cy Williams in 1928, and Pat Crawford in 1929. With just nine pinch-hits altogether, his home run percentage is a ML record.
