Ultimate Baseball Trivia

So it is Dale Long.

 

from his obituary in the L.A. Times:

 

After the streak, he was batting .411 with 14 homers. He later had a two-for-54 streak and tailed off to .263 with 27 homers and 91 runs batted in during 1956, his finest of 11 major league seasons.

"I don't know what it is with me," he said in an interview in July, 1956. "Sure, I got a little tired by all the things that suddenly began happening to me when I hit those eight homers in a row, but I can't blame my slump for that. I still think most of my troubles came from the fact that I was trying to hit the ball 900 miles. I should have been satisfied with those 390-foot jobs."
