It happened against Dave Righetti. When asked by reporters if it had ever happened to me before, I responded with "yeah, there are people back home washing cars who did it to me." Years later when I was traded to the Yankees, Ron Guidry put a copy of that article above Dave Righetti's locker.
Ok, it was my only inside the park home run. It was off John Cerutti in 1987 against Toronto when I was with the Yankees. See it here
My family for all of your support. My teachers for having the patience with me while I was in school. My driving instructor (20 speeding tickets.. what?) My doctors for keeping me semi-healthy. My friends, here's to you... cheers! To the fans who cheered me on. I'm sorry I couldn't be the hero every night. I tried and really wanted to.
