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.
