My First Time – Keith Hernandez – August 30, 1974
The Setting – Candlestick Park. San Francisco, CA.
From Hernandez – ‘Of all of the places for the Cardinals to be playing, they were in San Francisco – my home town. My family sat right behind home plate, near our dugout. I was 20 on a team of nothing but veterans, but the guys were nice enough to make me feel part of what they were doing.’
The Boxscore – Giants 8, Cardinals 2. Hernandez goes 1-for-2 with an RBI and two walks.
