Evidently if you are going to get six hits in a game, late May is the time to do it.
May 24th, 1986 – Anyone remember this?
A “drunk” Billy Martin is “fired” as the co-host of Saturday Night Live by executive producer Lorne Michaels after slurring his lines during a skit. In retaliation, the often-unemployed Yankee manager “sets fire” to his dressing room at the end of the show, which is the season finale.

This is great in so many ways. First and foremost Willie Davis. Second, 9 plate appearances and the team only scored 7 runs. Third, 6 hits and he only scored once. Dodger baseball is on the air. Great. Thank you.
Check that, they only scored three runs. Even more amazing.
Martin was a big fan of The Doors
