*******************************************************

CONTEST TIME  --  from the Great Moments in Baseball card --

  In 1956 Dale Long of the Pirates hit a home run in 8 consecutive games.

    --- In 1987,  who tied Dale's mark ??? ---- (try figuring out the answer before googling)

This feat was also tied again in 1993 by The Kid  -- Ken Griffey Jr

Only 20 players have hit home runs in at least 6 consecutive games in MLB history.


All who leave a comment with the correct answer, will be entered into the randomizer, and the winner will receive all the above 1988 Score cards.
Last day to comment will be March 4th 2017.

 Good Luck
