Lenny Haris last year on June 3(my B-Day) was told by a fan he was going to hit his first Home Run of the year. he had a polite exchange with her, and whata know he went deep. he stopped at the stands to shake hands with her and sought her out after the ball game and gave her an autographed ball.
Something not to tell his grandkids: in Ron Wrights major league debut last year on april 13 he struck out, bounced into a double play and hit into a triple play. 5 days later he banished bak to the minors and never resurfaced again.
