Random card. Freddie Patek.

To this day, I still can't get over the fact that Freddie hit 3 home runs in a single game. It seems impossible. He had 6 seasons where he didn't hit 3 home runs. And he only hit 1 more home run in his career after that.

The score on June 20, 1980 was California 20 Boston 2. Freddie went 4 for 6 with 4 runs scored and 7 RBI. He had 1 double and 3 home runs, and struck out and grounded into a DP. He also made an error.

Do you think they called him Big Papa after that game? I know I would have.

Why would anyone go to the trouble of having a common card graded?
