On August 28, 1971 — In his first at-bat in the Little League World Series finale, Lloyd McClendon blasts a three-run homer, prompting the Chinese Taipei manager to order his pitchers to intentionally walk the 12 year-old for the rest of the game. The Gary, Indiana Little Leaguer, the future manager of the Pirates and Mariners, hits five home runs in five at bats, all on the first pitch, and is walked in his other five plate appearances in the three games he plays in the tournament.
