Highlights

August 27, 1966: Steve goes 3-for-4 including an inside-the-park home run at Yankee Stadium in an 11-1 win over the Tigers.  The homer came in the bottom of the second off Tigers starter Johnny Podres and opened the scoring in the game.  Steve would also later double in Tom Tresh for his second RBI on the night.

August 28, 1966: In his sixth career game, Steve blasts a grand slam at Yankee Stadium off the Tigers' Mickey Lolich. The slam was the first and only "granny" of his career and expanded the Yankee lead to 6-0 in a game the Yankees would win by an 8-1 score.  Called up on August 23rd, Steve got off to a hot start and this was his third home run in as many games and boosted his average to .391.
