Death of Tyrone Power - 1958 Tyrone Power was one of Hollywood's most popular actors from his debut in 1936 until the time of his untimely death in 1958. In 1957, the twice-divorced Power met Deborah Ann Montgomery Minardos. They were married on May 7, 1958, just after Power's 44th birthday. She became pregnant soon afterward. In September 1958, Power and his wife travelled to Madrid and Valdespartera, Spain to film Solomon and Sheba under the direction of King Vidor. Deborah Ann was worried about Tyrone's health and asked him to slow down, but he pushed ahead with the movie. He had filmed about 75 percent of his scenes when he was stricken with a massive heart attack while he was filming a strenuous dueling scene with his frequent co-star and friend, George Sanders. He died en route to the hospital. Yul Brynner was hastily brought in to take over Power's role of Solomon. The filmmakers used some of the long shots that Power had filmed, and an observant fan can see him in some of the scenes, particularly in the middle of the duel. Power's last role was a familiar one, with sword in hand. He is perhaps best remembered as a swashbuckler, and, indeed, he was reportedly one of the finest swordsmen in Hollywood. Director Henry King said, "People always seem to remember Ty with sword in hand, although he once told me he wanted to be a character actor. He actually was quite good – among the best swordsmen in films." Power was buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery at noon on November 21, 1958, in a military service. (This is a photo of his grave marker.) His son, Tyrone Power Jr., was born on January 22, 1959.

Rennie Stennett - 7-Hit Game On Tuesday, September 16, 1975, Rennie Stennett of the Pittsburgh Pirates accomplished something that no other MLB player did in the 20th century: He got seven hits in a nine-inning game. The hapless victims were the Chicago Cubs who were pummelled 22-0 in their home ballpark, Wrigley Field. Luckily for the hometown Cubs, fewer than 5,000 of their fans were present to witness the most lopsided shutout in MLB history. Stennett was the Pirates' second baseman and leadoff hitter. He began the offensive barrage with a leadoff double off Cubs' starter Rick Reuschel (who gave up eight runs in one-third of an inning before being yanked.) Stennett got a second hit in the first inning, a single, as the Pirates jumped out to a quick 9-0 lead. Stennett got two other extra-base hits--another double and a triple--before being removed in the seventh inning for a pinch runner. He had gone 7-for-7 at the plate and collected 11 total bases and two RBIs. The triple came off Rick Reuschel's brother, Paul, in the sixth inning--another inning in which Stennett got two hits. The only other player in MLB history to get seven hits in a nine-inning game was Wilbert Robinson of the old National League Baltimore Orioles who did it in a 25-4 win over St. Louis on June 10, 1892.

Gene Stephens 3-Hit Inning On June 18, 1953, 20-year-old Gene Stephens collected three hits in one inning for the Boston Red Sox during a 23-3 victory over the Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park. The Bosox exploded for 17 runs in the seventh inning - sending 23 batters to the plate during their 47-minute half of the frame. Stephens had a double and two singles off three different Detroit pitchers. The 17 runs scored by Boston in that inning were two more than the previous modern MLB record, set by the Brooklyn Dodgers in a May 21, 1952, contest against the Cincinnati Reds. The Red Sox had 14 hits in their memorable inning to set a new modern MLB mark in that category. Gene Stephens was mostly a reserve player in his 12 MLB seasons. His batting average was only .204 in 1953, making his three-hit inning on June 18 even more surprising. The Red Sox led 5-3 going into their half of the seventh inning. Detroit pitcher Steve Gromek allowed nine of the 17 runs while Dick Weik and Earl Harrist each allowed four. Boston had 27 total hits in the game. The day before, they had 20 hits when they walloped Detroit 17-1. “I was the youngest ballplayer in the major leagues at the time,” Stephens recalled years later, whose three-hit performance was witnessed by only 3,108 Fenway fans that afternoon. “I probably shouldn’t have even been in the major leagues at that time. Ted Williams had gone to the Korean War and, therefore, that gave me the opportunity to play. As soon as [Williams] came back, the Red Sox optioned me down to their AAA team in Louisville." The all-time record for most runs scored in an inning is 18, set by the Chicago White Stockings against the Detroit Wolverines on Sept. 6, 1883, in a National League affair. During that onslaught (also in the seventh inning), three different Chicago players had three hits in the frame: Tommy Burns (two doubles, one home run), Fred Pfeffer (two singles, one double), and Ned Williamson (two singles, one double). The only other hitter in modern MLB history (since 1900) with three hits in one inning was Johnny Damon, who was also a member of the Boston Red Sox. Damon achieved his feat when Boston whipped the Florida Marlins 25-8 on June 27, 2003. Damon collected three hits (a single, double, and triple) in the first inning as the Bosox scored a record 10 runs before any Boston batter was put out.
