Larry Doby of the Indians hits the first major league homer over the outer wall in Kansas City’s Municipal Stadium‚ an estimated 500-foot clout in the 6th. The Indians win, 4 – 2, behind Herb Score‚ who is replaced in the 9th after singles by catcher Wilmer Shantz and pinch hitter Enos Slaughter. Wilmer’s brother Bobby Shantz is the loser.
