Mike Page's big moment in the major leagues came on July 24, 1968. That's when the outfielder from Woodruff, S.C., picked up his first major-league hit.
Page was hitting .313 with three home runs and 20 RBI for Richmond of the International League when he got a call-up from the Braves on June 27, 1968.
In a game against the Mets, Atlanta's Page connected on a single off Ron Taylor. Maybe it was the excitement of the moment, but, according to reports of the game, Page forgot to slide into second on Michael Lum's bunt and he was promptly called out.
Two days later, on July 26, Page went two-for-four in
the second game of a double-header with the Phillies. His hit drove in Joe Torre
and it would prove to be the only RBI of Page's major-league career.
