On This Day In Baseball History: April 21, 1994

Eddie Murray

 

Cleveland Indians switch hitting DH Eddie Murray leads his team to victory over the Minnesota Twins as he homers from both sides of the plate. This gives Steady Eddie 11 games in which he has homered from both sides passing Mickey Mantle for the Major League record that he set in 1964. Murray will finish his career with 504 homers, good for second all-time, allowing Mantle to hold on to the record of most career homers by a switch hitter.
