Did You Know…

Happy Anniversary Andre Dawson!!!

On this day in 1987, Andre Dawson hit for the cycle as his Chicago Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants 8-4.

Batting 3rd in the Cubs’ line-up, Dawson went 5-for-5 in the game while collecting 2 RBI. 

The breakdown – Hit #1 – 1st inning, Home Run(6th of the season).  Hit #2 – 3rd inning, Double.  Hit #3 – 4th inning – Single.  Hit #4 – 6th inning – Triple.  Hit #5 – 8th inning – Single.  Not a bad day at the ballpark, huh???
