Regular

September 30, 1934

With a two-run homer in the Cardinals’ 9-0 victory over Cincinnati, Rip Collins establishes a National League record when he blasts his league-leading 35th home run of the season as a switch hitter. The 30-year-old first baseman’s mark will not be broken until Howard Johnson goes deep from both sides of the plate 36 times in 1987 for the Mets.
