On March 28, 1958, Hall of Famer Chuck Klein dies at the age of 53. Klein batted .320 with 300 home runs over a 17-year career. He enjoyed his best season in 1933, when he won the National League’s Triple Crown.
Equalling the 1996 Orioles, the Blue Jays become only the second team in major league history to have seven players to hit twenty or more homers during the same season when DH Darrin Fletcher goes deep in the fifth inning for the team’s only tally in a 23-1 rout by the Orioles at Camden Yards. The other Toronto players to reach the milestone include Carlos Delgado, Tony Batista, Shannon Stewart, Jose Cruz, Raul Mondesi, and Brad Fullmer.
