April 25, 1976 was not a Monday …. not a Saturday … but coincidentally sandwiched between them …. Sunday …. and a Sunday at a ballpark.
Rick Monday was a bonus baby signed by the Kansas City A’s out of Arizona State. He played 19 seasons on 4 teams with respectable stats over his 1986 games: 241 HR, 775 RBI, .264 BA, .443 SLG. Yet his most proud moment was during the 4th inning on April 25, 1976.
This is a great interview and retrospective of that day 33 years ago today.
