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.
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.
