1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #4 – Cliff Johnson

1985 Topps Record Breakers – Card #4 – Cliff Johnson

Headline – “Cliff Johnson’s 19th Pinch-Homer Breaks His Tie With Jerry Lynch”

The Story – Baltimore, Maryland, August 5, 1984.  Blue Jays’ Cliff Johnson batted for Willie Aiken in the 8th inning and promptly belted his 19th career pinch-homer to give club 4-3 win vs. Orioles and establish a new major league record.  The former mark of 18 pinch-homers had been set by Jerry Lynch(Pirates, Reds), 1954-1966.

My added notes – Johnson added 1 more pinch-homer to his tally giving him 20 for his career.  His record still stands today.
