He hits two home runs and drives in seven runs.
Hisle could play some ball. A centerfielder, In ’77 with the Twins he hit.302 with 28 HR and 119 RBIs, with 21 stolen bases. In ’78, with Milwaukee, .290, 34 HR, 115 RBIs. A torn rotator cuff in ’79 pretty much ended his career, unfortunately.
I always liked Hisle. The Twins picked him up in a trade from the Cardinals for relief pitcher Wayne Granger. Nice trade for us. He left the Twins as a free agent. One of the many.
Also of note today: Lefty Grove’s birthday. (1900.) And, in 2006, Kirby Puckett passed away, at 46.
