On August 15, 1989 — In his second start after coming back from cancer surgery, Giant Dave Dravecky suffers a broken arm beating the Expos, 3 – 2. The Youngstown, Ohio native collapses to the ground and clutches his left arm in severe pain after throwing a wild pitch to Tim Raines. The bone will heal but Dravecky will break it again during the Giants on-field celebration when they clinch the pennant later that season. Dravecky will not pitch again in the major leagues.
