Batting leadoff for Cincinnati that day was Pokey Reese "s Pieces". Reggie "Bar" Sanders pinch hit for Graves late in that game.

The Astros players that day included Jeff Bagwell. Bringing home trick or treat candy in a bag, well, that's how it's done. Unless you use an old pillow case. Also Dave "I want a" Clark "Bar". (My usual Chris Berman name for him is Dave Clark "Thirty-Five", a reference to the number he wore for at least part of his career as well as to the 1960s British group the Dave Clark Five.)

That year, I had him on my Strat-o-Matic team, and my "playing" photocopy of his S-o-M card had the 'R' of his first name accidentally cut off. So I taped the picture to the back of the card, and for the rest of the year, my long man in the bullpen was "Oger McDowell."

I had a monster year...

A swamp fox doesn't sound like something you'd want to run into. Somehow he finished 3rd in MVP voting with 3.8 WAR and 3 homers. Still won the ROY.
