My career path
From 1# Draft to accidental fame
What was to be a three-year trial run for the designated hitter in January 1973, became Ron Blomberg's accidental fame . Facing All-Star pitcher Luis Tiant, a young Blomberg drew a walk in his first at-bat.
Two innings later, Blomberg became the first DH to record a hit. Blomberg that day went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in a 15-5 loss to the Red Sox. But history was written that day.
