Via Deadspin this afternoon, a long-lost clip of what may be the most audacious home run pimping in this history of home run pimps (or at least that which has been captured on video).
Behold, Rich Aude of the Buffalo Bisons.
In his defense: It was a game-winner, in his home ballpark. To his detriment: Everything else.
According to the Buffalo News, the pitcher, Bob Wishnevski of the Springfield Redbirds, exacted revenge two months later, drilling Aude in the back.
The first baseman went on to appear in 62 games over parts of three seasons with the Pirates. He apparently got his act together, because he was never hit by a pitch at the big league level.
