Former Orioles slugger Jim Gentile

Sept. 29, 1961: "Trying to express how I feel is about as tough as hitting [the New York Yankees'] Whitey Ford," Jim Gentile says as Orioles fans celebrate a night in the slugger's honor at Memorial Stadium. Gifts include a white Corvette convertible and a family membership at the Towson YMCA for Gentile, 27, who sets team records this year for home runs (46) and RBIs (141).
