    Baseballapalooza 1987 Part IV


    by Baseballisms

    The adventures of Frank and Joe have taken us through a game at Yankee Stadium, Veterans Stadium for a doubleheader game, out to the home of the Big Red Machine, Riverfront Stadium in Cincinatti and now on to the final leg Three Rivers Stadium. My ticket stub, which is now embedded forever in my brother Kevin's bar, tells me that the Pittsburgh Pirates were playing the Los Angeles Dodgers on that particular day. tells me that Rick Reuschel beat Fernando Valenzuela 6-0 with the help of Bobby Bonnilla's 3 for 4, one homer, five RBI day. The Pirates lead off hitter that day was none other than Barry Bonds.
