Benintendi gets 5 hits...

yesterday against the Orioles. He is the 2nd youngest player for Boston to ever do that…only exceeded by Tony Conigliaro in 1967. That is impressive.

Wow…now there’s a blast from the past…Tony C…great career ruined by a pitch from Jack Hamilton. He sustained permanent damage to his eye. He came back but was never the same hitter. … for_tony_c

According to this article, the record that he broke was that of Babe Ruth.

Yes, I read about it being Babe Ruth…the deal about Tony Conigliaro was on ESPN. I don’t know who was right, so I guess it doesn’t matter. Benintendi did something pretty cool. That little guy is one heckuva ballplayer.
