May 7, 1969

Willie Davis, furious with the Wrigley Field Bleacher Bums because of their continual verbal abuse of him, tells his Dodgers teammates that he wants to hit a home run in the middle of the group, which he does in the sixth inning to tie the score. The LA center fielder exacts a bit more revenge on the heckling crowd when his 12th-inning two-run homer proves to be the difference in the 4-2 defeat of the Cubs.
