I sat in the bleachers at Wrigley for this game, which was not noteworthy other than being the first of two games in two different cities played that day by Joel Youngblood. He was traded during the game to Montreal and played later the same evening for the Expos in Philadelphia. He got hits in both games!
Amazing he was able to get out of O'Hare that quickly.

I recall listening to this game on radio, hearing that Joel Youngblood was removed during the middle of the afternoon game at Wrigley Field because he was traded to the Montréal Expos. Later that night, I was watching sports highlights on TV when I saw a reply of Youngblood's first hit with the Expos in their night game against the Phillies at Veterans Stadium.

The Joel Youngblood, two-team two-hit day is what everybody remembers about that day. For me, one other thing as well... My daughter was born that day!! Around my house that trumps Youngblood!
