This Day in Giants History: September 2, 1975

Johnny LeMaster homers in his first major-league at-bat, and the Giants beat the Dodgers, 7-3. In twelve years and 3‚191 at-bats‚ LeMaster will hit only 22 home runs‚ but this first hit is a major-league record — an inside the park homer. Brian Downing in 1973 was the first player to hit his first homer inside the park.
