This Day in Baseball History
On July 31, 1954, Milwaukee Braves slugger Joe Adcock sets a major league record by accumulating 18 total bases in a single game. Adcock hits four home runs and a double in the Braves’ 15-7 win over the Brooklyn Dodgers. In 2002, Dodgers outfielder Shawn Green will break Adcock's mark for total bases, racking up 19, also in Milwaukee.
