On May 8, 1906, At Huntington Avenue Baseball Grounds, Philadelphia A’s manager Connie Mack inserts pitcher Chief Bender into left field because of a rash of injuries to his regular outfielders. Making his outfield debut in the sixth inning, Bender responds by hitting two inside-the-park home runs, of Philadelphia’s 11-4 victory over Boston.

The Hall of Fame hurler’s home runs, a seventh-inning solo shot and a three-run blast in the ninth given up by Jesse Tannehill. Bender will hit just 3 homeruns in his entire career.
