This Day in Baseball History
On July 23, 1944, Chicago Cubs slugger Bill Nicholson receives an intentional walk with the bases loaded in the seventh inning of a game against the New York Giants. The Giants’ unusual strategy is understandable, given Nicholson’s four consecutive home runs over the last two games. In spite of Nicholson’s power barrage, the Giants win the game, 12-10.
