» May 3, 1963: In his 1st and only at bat as an Oriole, pitcher Les "Buster" Narum homers against Detroit's Don Mossi. Six days later, Narum is optioned to Rochester but will return to the majors next year with Washington where he'll hit two more. Narum is the first pitcher to have more homers than wins in a season, but he'll be matched on September 2nd by Ed Hobaugh, and in 1992 by Dave Eiland.
» September 2, 1963: With the Senators ahead 5–3 on 4th-inning homers by Don Zimmer and Ed Brinkman, Nats starter Ed Hobaugh hits his only career home run in the same frame off Cleveland's Jerry Walker. The Tribe knocks out Hobaugh but the Senators hold on to win, 8–7. Hobaugh's homer comes on his last official at bat: in his one more plate appearance, he draws a walk. Hobaugh joins Buster Narum this year as the first pitchers to have more homers than wins in a year. It'll be matched this century by Dave Eiland in 1992.
» March 31, 1964: The Senators send young prospect Lou Piniella to the Orioles for Buster Narum and cash. Piniella will play briefly for the O's before going to minors until the resurfacing with the Indians in 1968. The Seattle Pilots will draft him in 1969 and trade him to Kansas City where Sweet Lou, with his 5th team, finally wins Rookie of the Year honors.
» February 13, 1968: The White Sox trade SS Ron Hansen and pitchers Dennis Higgins and Steve Jones to Washington for pitchers Bob Priddy and Les Narum and IF Tim Cullen.
» April 10, 1992: San Diego's Dave Eiland becomes the 9th pitcher in history to homer in his 1st major league at bat. He connects against Bob Ojeda of the Dodgers in an 8–3 Padre win. Eiland does enter the trivia books as also he serves up a homer to the first batter he faces. Rookie pitcher Jim Bullinger will also homer on his 1st ML at bat this year. The winless Eiland will end the year on another trivia record note: he joins Buster Narum and Ed Hobaugh, both in 1963, as pitchers with more homers than wins in a year.
