Box Score of the Week

The Los Angeles Dodgers vs. the San Diego Padres - April 10, 1992.


Having played in the American League the first four seasons of his career, Padres pitcher Dave Eiland never had an opportunity to bat in a game. So in his first ever Major League Baseball plate appearance, which took place in this game, Eiland homered. Four seasons earlier, in August 1988, Eiland surrendered a home run to the first batter he ever faced. Those feats paired together makes Eiland the only player in MLB history to accomplish such a thing.
