Joe Pepitone Hits 2 Home Runs in One Inning
Date of Event: May 23, 1962
In 1961, the Yankees won the American League pennant with a veteran ball club. But it was clear that they would have to make some changes in the coming years. Yogi Berra, Tony Kubek, Bobby Richardson, and Elston Howard were all on the other side of the mountain, so to speak. Luckily, rookies, Tom Tresh, Phil Linz, and Joe Pepitone bring something new for ’62.
