FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»December 9, 1992:
The Braves sign free agent Cy Young Award and Gold Glove winner Greg Maddux to a 5-year contract, and then trade pitchers Charlie Leibrandt and Pat Gomez to the Rangers in exchange for 3B Jose Oliva. Leibrandt (15–7) saw his star fall in Atlanta when he gave up 11th-inning extra base hits in the 1992 World Series and the 1991 NLCS. Maddux, who turned down a $28.5 million contract extension in mid–season with the Cubs, signs for $28 million, $6 million less than the Yankees offered.
»June 23, 1994:
The Reds defeat the Giants, 7-5, in a contest which sees SF P Pat Gomez throw three consecutive wild pitches in the 8th inning. Gomez's next pitch, like the three previous ones, bounces in the dirt, but C Kirt Manwaring is able to block it, preventing Gomez from becoming just the 3rd pitcher ever to throw four wild pitches in an inning.
