In Cincinnati they witnessed a legendary game by pitcher Michael Lorenzen. The Reds player hit a home run, filmed in the gardens and also won the duel. He is the first to do it in MLB since Babe Ruth.
Lorenzen emulated what the historic Bambino achieved, one of the most important figures in the history of the elders, on June 13, 1921.
The four-corner stake of Lorenzen, who after pitching went on to cover the center garden, served to seal an 8-5 victory over the Phillies. According to data, he was his first homer of the campaign and traveled 387 feet away.
It was a magical night for the Reds and Lorenzen Tremendous.
