The setting: Atlanta, Georgia. Fulton County Stadium
From Baker – “My minor legaue manager told me the good news, just after we had won the championship game, and I called home collect. I’d had a good year in the low minors, but that was a heck of a jump, being nineteen years old and going from Greenwood in the Western Carolinas league up o Atlanta.”
The box score – Astros 6, Braves 3(10 Innings). 0-for-1 as a pinch hitter.
