On July 23, 1964, Kansas City A’s shortstop Bert Campaneris hits two home runs in his major league debut. He rips a home run on the first pitch he sees from Minnesota’s Jim Kaat, and belts another home run in the seventh inning. Campaneris, who becomes only the second player to hit two home runs in his first game, will hit only 79 home runs in 19 years.
