My First Time – Tony Perez – July 26, 1964
The setting – Crosley Field. Cincinnati, OH.
From Perez – ‘I took a cab right to the ballpark and there was a doubleheader, and I played right away, both games. I had traveled all night from Oklahoma, but it didn’t matter. I hit a few balls well, but went 0-for-8’.
The Boxscore – Reds 7, Pirates 2. Perez goes 0-for-2 with a walk and strikeout in Game 1 of a double-header.
