Who Hit His First Homerun Off Cy Young? Fughedaboutit!

To celebrate the Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, how about a taste of baseball history? Here you go! My great-grandfather was the man!

Catcher in the Sky

Yes, Con Daily, when he played in Brooklyn! On July 5th, top of the 5th inning, while playing for Brooklyn Bridegrooms (now Los Angeles Dodgers) against Indianapolis, in Indianapolis. This was one of only two home runs that Con hit his entire career. He was not a power hitter. But boy, oh boy, to have hit a homer off Cy Young is pretty special. Here is more info from BaseballReference.com.
