Today In Brewer History: Stubbs' slam

One of Franklin Stubbs' 20 home runs as a Brewer came in a clutch situation 21 years ago today.

On this day in 1992 nine innings were not enough to determine a winner between the Rangers and Brewers at County Stadium. The two teams went to the tenth tied at three, and that was still the score when the Brewers came to bat.

Robin Yount let off the bottom of the inning with a double, and went to third on Greg Vaughn's bloop single. Dante Bichette was intentionally walked to load the bases, but Kevin Seitzer struck out swinging for the first out. That left it up to Franklin Stubbs, pretty widely seen as one of the biggest free agent busts in franchise history.

Stubbs was up to the task on this day, though, hitting a grand slam down the right field line to give the Crew a 7-3, walkoff victory. It was only the second extra inning home run of Stubbs' career, his third and final grand slam and the only walkoff homer in ten major league seasons.

With help from the B-Ref Play Index, happy birthday today to:

Today is also the 45th anniversary of the Chicago White Sox playing their first home game at County Stadium, which we covered in this space last year, and the 22nd anniversary of Paul Molitor hitting for the cycle against the Twins in 1991, which we covered in this space two years ago.
