Biographical Information[edit]

Six of Roric Harrison's 15 career hits were home runs. He was the last pitcher to hit a home run in an American League game before the designated hitter rule: on October 3, 1972, for the Baltimore Orioles against Cleveland Indians pitcher Ray Lamb. It was 25 years before another AL pitcher hit a home run, when Bobby Witt became the first AL pitcher to homer in an interleague game, in 1997. It took even longer for an AL pitcher to hit one against another AL team: that was in 2021, when Shohei Ohtani did so in a game in which the Angels declined to use the DH.
