At almost this exact dale in J256, the Pittsburgh Pirates were W'Out ready to launch their own version of a baseball "all-out offensive" which was to rock the major leagues. It wasn't to slop unlil the Picaroonies were lo Dale Long, who was to go on and blast a record eight homers IB as man.v games, hid go many friends he was almost mobbed ei'erylfme he led ifte ball park. Long had ripped nine round-lrlppcrs, batted In 2D runs and hit safely 43 limes in 108 at bals for a .39S average. All these marks highs. were major - league American League flag away from the Yankees Ihis year. And if there are any doubting Ihomases around, Lopez offers Ihe league standing and last flight's games as proof.
