Frank hit the only fair ball out of the stadium...

:...In the spring of '66, when a few of us went to a double-header with the O's playing the Indians. It was one of the 2 highlights for us that season, the other being Ned Turnbull's no-no in Raleigh. Frank hit a 2-iron shot just inside the left field foul pole and out of the old stadium as it was still rising. Tiant and Sam McDowell started for Cleveland. We sat low on the first base side and had a good view of the shot.

The thing I recall even more was the ladies behind us screaming at Chico Salmon, a utility player for the Indians, saying "We eat salmon".
