Sounds like great news. Unfortunately, he was overshadowed by two other stars on the same day. How is that possible?
Well, John McGraw retired from managing on that day due to poor health. That was after being a manager for 33 years!
In addition to McGraw retiring, one of Lazzeri's teammates did something that had never happened before in baseball history. Lou Gehrig became the first player to hit four homers in a game. He also had 6 RBIs in the Yankee win.
