John Paciorek's Game Was 44 Years Ago Today
One of my favourite blogs is Stat of the Day which today has a nice little write up about John Paciorek. 44 years ago today, John Paciorek played his one and only major league baseball game for the Houston Colt .45's.
He got to the plate 5 times that day, going 3 for 3 and taking two walks. He also got 3 RBIs and scored 4 runs easily giving him the greatest one game career in major league history.
John Paciorek made the most of his shot, but never earned his way back to the show. A back injury the next year hampered things and he retired from baseball in 1969. Here's the boxscore from that September 29, 1963 game.
