Found May 09, 2012 on Reading Between The Seams:
Thankful Tonight was Josh Hamilton’s night, as he broke an American League record with 18 total bases. Hamilton went 5-5 with four home runs, a double and eight RBI against the Baltimore Orioles. Only Shawn Green has more total bases in a MLB game with 19 on May 23, 2002. Green accomplished this feat while playing with the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League. Now, Shawn Green is thankful for Hamilton’s night as people are remembering Green’s amazing and record breaking game of almost ten years ago. You have to love how great current accomplishments bring to light the great accomplishments of the past. Hats off to Mr. Green. Thanks Josh!
Thanks for all of the nice messages tonight…and thanks Josh Hamilton for getting people to remember me!beta.jocktalk.com/post/id/3516 — Shawn Green (@shawngreen15) May 9, 2012
