Career highlights and awards

Darnell "Disco Dan" Glenn Ford (born May 19, 1952 in Los Angeles, California), is a former professional baseball player who played in the Major Leagues primarily as an outfielder from 1975-1985.

Career highlights

  • Dan hit the first home run at the rebuilt Yankee Stadium on April 15, 1976.
  • On August 10, 1979, Ford hit for the cycle for the Angels against the Seattle Mariners.
  • Ford hit a home run for the Orioles in Game 3 of the 1983 World Series.
  • Early in that Orioles championship season, on May 19, 1983, Ford had homered in the eighth inning at Baltimore, as the only hit in a 1-0 defeat of the White Sox, whom the Orioles would eventually face in the ALCS. In a coincidence of names, Ford's game-winning homer came off Richard Dotson (a homonym of "Datsun"). [1]
