FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»August 12, 1995: Thanks to an odd play, the Dodgers defeat the Pirates, 11-10, in 11 innings. With the potential winning run at 3rd base, Mitch Webster of the Dodgers swings at a pitch in the dirt. When Pittsburgh rookie C Angelo Encarnacion casually fields the ball with his mask, Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda appeals, citing the rule which awards a runner two bases if a fielder uses his mask to touch a thrown ball. The umpires agree and allow the winning run to score.
