Iron Hands Hiller led NL second basemen with 29 errors playing for the 1962 NL champion
Giants. He was the first NL player to hit a World Series grand slam, connecting off
Marshall Bridges in the seventh inning of San Francisco's 7-3, Game Four victory
over the Yankees. Later used extensively as a pinch hitter by the Mets, he led the
NL with 15 pinch hits in 1966.
FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»October 8, 1962: Tom Haller and Chuck Hiller power San Francisco to a World Series-tying win 7–3. Haller's 2-run home run puts the Giants in front, and Hiller's surprising grand slam is the margin of victory.
»May 27, 1964: The first two leadoff batters for the Giants -- Chuck Hiller and Duke Snider -- belt homers off Cardinal pitcher Bob Gibson. That's all the scoring the Giants get, but it's enough as they win, 2–1.
