More Good Brother Stories
On this day in 1965 I'm sure the Beatles were most of the news in the world. In baseball, Jesus Alou hit a homer in a win against the Pirates. He was then replaced in right field by Cap Peterson. An inning later Peterson was replaced by Matty Alou, brother of Jesus. Matty then hit the game-winning homer. It doesn't mention why two right fielders were taken out in two innings.
Matty, shown as a Pirate here, got onto a Kellogg's card just like his brother Felipe. Jesus never got that honor.
Willie Mays also homered for the victorious Giants. In game two of the double header, Matty Alou played the entire game in right field. Mays added another homer.
