On September 26, 1982 – Down 1 – 0 to the Atkanta Braves in the 3rd, San Diego Padres OF Gene Richards hits a long fly ball down the LF line that Terry Harper spears at the last second. But Harper’s momentum carries him out of bounds where he hits the railing dropping the ball. Meanwhile the speedy Richards circles the bases. The umpire rules Harper did not hold the ball long enough for an out and he is charged with a four-base error (later overruled by the League office to an inside-the-park home run for Richards). The Padres win the game, 3 – 2.
