This Day In Baseball History

May 16


1965 Future Hall of Famer Jim Palmer, pitching 3.2 innings in relief, wins his first major league game when the Orioles defeat the Yankees at Memorial Stadium, 7-5. The 19 year-old Orioles' rookie right-hander makes the day more memorable when he hits a two-run homer off Jim Bouton in the fourth inning.

Thanks for not showing us a photo of Palmer in his Jockeys it would kill the pretty females we've come to expect from you.
