  • August 9, 1960 Cleveland Indian's Power's hit ricochets off the top of the RF fence in Cleveland toward Lou Clinton. The ball hits Clinton's foot and is "kicked" over the fence. Umpire Hal Smith rules the hit a home run, since the ball never touched the ground.
  • July 13, 1962 In Kansas City, the Boston Red Sox outlast the Kansas City Athletics, 11–10, in 15 innings. Boston collects 21 hits to KC's 20. Lou Clinton wins the marathon with an RBI single and adds the cycle as he goes 5-for-7.
