Joe Adcock was Dave Kingman for a day:

Here is my story that aired last night on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:

I’ll tell you something about Milwaukee.  We were playing the Milwaukee Braves at Ebbets Field, and Joe Adcock was their first baseman. 

His first at-bat: home run.

Second at-bat: home run.

Third at-bat: home run.

Fourth at-bat: home run.

In his fifth at-bat he just missed a home run but settled for a double.  So he collected 18 total bases. 

Now the next day Clem Labine was pitching.  Adcock comes to the plate and Labine hits him right in the head.  We had the biggest free-for-all you’ve ever seen at Ebbets Field.
