55 years ago today

One of my favorite trivia questions -- what Hall of Fame pitcher hit a homer in his first MLB at bat on April 23, 1952, and never homered again?

Hint -- he broke in with the Giants.

That would be Hoyt Wilhelm.

Yes, I too love that question, and have asked it many times.

Did you know that he also hit one triple in his career?

Too bad Wilhelm was never with San Francisco. Those 60s teams were always one pitcher shy.
