This Day in Baseball History
On May 21, 1952, the Brooklyn Dodgers put together an amazing first-inning rally. After one man is retired, 19 consecutive Dodgers reach base, including shortstop Harold “Pee Wee” Reese, who reaches three times, and Duke Snider, who homers. The Dodgers score 15 runs on their way to a 19-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
