This Day in Baseball History
On May 22, 1968, Pittsburgh Pirates slugger Willie Stargell hits three home runs in a 13-6 victory over the Chicago Cubs. The future Hall of Famer just misses a fourth home run when he hits a long double that bounces off the railing of the left field bleachers at Wrigley Field.
