Didn't he hit a ball that came and bounced off the ground across plate for a homer i nthe minor leagues?
Yes he sure did, Red Stripe!! Wish there was a video of it somewhere, anywhere! He should play cricket!!!
I believe he smacked it for a double.
A few days ago, I read an article about him in USA Today. He said that he used to play "La Placa" (the plate) when he was a kid where a license plate vertically or something similar to a rectangle was placed behind the batter. If the ball hit the plate then the AB was over. Conversely, AB continued as long as the plate was untouched.
