Random Percival 1996 question


Recommended Posts

That year he had 1 at bat. Anyone know how the heck that happened considering interleague hadn't even started yet? Something crazy must have happened. 

Side note: Percival had  4 at bats with Cardinals thus going 0-5 with 5ks for his career. 

Somewhere deep in my memory I'm pretty sure I watched that game.

I'm sure it was a situation where the team put their DH into the field then brought Percival in for a 4 out save only to see his spot come up with 2 out and the bases loaded (or something like that) in the 9th.

Sounds like some Maddon fuckery

Hard to understand why they would let Percival hit in a tie game, with a runner at first and one out in the 10th inning. I'm guessing the team was playing short handed that night, but at no point in the game did they use a backup catcher, reserve outfielder or any backup infielder aside from Jack Howell.
