[edit] Biographical Information

On August 4, 1982, Joel Youngblood went 1 for 2 in the Mets game at Wrigley Field. He was traded in the afternoon so he flew to Philadelphia where his new team, the Montreal Expos, were playing. Inserted as a pinch hitter, he went 1-1. Both hits came against Hall of Fame pitchers, Fergie Jenkins of the Cubs and Steve Carlton of the Phillies.

Youngblood became the third player to play for two teams in a day. He is the only player to get hits for two teams in a day and to play in two different cities in the same day.

In 1990, Youngblood played for the Sun City Rays of the Senior Professional Baseball Association. He played in 22 games and had batted .326 with 4 home runs and 16 RBI when the league folded.
