1960 – Following three straight bunt singles by Pittsburgh to start off the 9th, a visibly rattled Robin Roberts administers an utterly unintentional four-pitch free pass to Roberto Clemente, who, despite his free-swinging and prideful reputation, is evidently not entirely inflexible in his determination to accept no handouts.
