July 19, 1960

Juan Marichal of the Giants had the best debut start of any MLB pitcher in history when he threw a 2-0 one-hitter against the Phillies. Future HOF indeed.

Baseball history is best.

2. September 15, 1963

The three Alou brothers: Felipe, Matty, and Jesus, all played together in the same outfield for the Giants

On September 15, 1963, Felipe Alou started the game playing in right field. In the seventh inning, Felipe changed positions from right to left field after Jesus Alou replaced Willie McCovey (who started in left). In the eighth inning, Felipe changed positions from left to center field after Matty Alou replaced Willie Mays (who started in center). The San Francisco Giants outfield at that point was Matty (LF), Felipe (CF) and Jesus (RF) - the first, and through today, only all-brother outfield trio in baseball history.

3. Few people are aware

of the "lost" Alou brother who changed his last name to Powell and started at first base for the Orioles around the same time.
