This Day in Baseball History - June 12
quote:


1983
"I didn't know what to say, so I just sort of mumbled, 'Well, O.K.,' " - DALE MURPHY, responding to fan’s request to hit a home run.

When Dale Murphy visits with Elizabeth Smith in the stands to give her a cap and a T-shirt, her nurse asks the Braves' outfielder to hit a home run for the six-year-old girl, who lost both her hands and a leg when she stepped on a live power line. The reigning National League MVP obliges, hitting two homers and driving in all the runs in the team’s 3–2 victory over the Giants at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium.

That occurred to me when I saw that blurb.
