Yankee Fan Fest Trivia Contest, Part II

By

Jen of No Sense Worrying has donated four tickets to the All Star FanFest for tomorrow afternoon. She wants us to give it away through a trivia contest. So here’s your question. The first person to answer the question correctly based on the time of your comment wins the tickets. Ready? Set? Go: Which Yankee was the first pitcher to DH in a game? When was the game? What spot in the lineup did he hit? What was his hitting line for the day? And who was the winning pitcher that day?

    Rick Rhoden
    Went 0-1 with a sac fly (1 RBI)
    June 11, 1988
    batted 7th
    Yanks won 8-6 WP: John Candelaria

    Lindy McDaniel

    September 25th, 1973; first year of DH.

    He hit in the 9th spot and was 0 for 2.

    Eduardo Rodriguez was the winning pitcher.

    Mind you, I did look up the details at BR. If that’s cheating, I hope I haven’t screwed it up for somebody who (honestly) knew all that off the top of the head if that’s possible. Did have an inkling it was Lindy though, as he was a pretty good hitting pitcher.
