Default Tuesday nite Trivia ?

What pitcher was so awestruck when the batter, he was pitching to, hit such a tremendous HR....
that he walked off the mound and greeted this batter at home plate and shook his hand ?

Had to google the answer. Will hold off until others have a chance to play. Hints: The batter is more obvious than the pitcher. It wasn't Roger Clemens and Mike Piazza.

How about Bill "Spaceman" Lee when he threw his famous blooper or slurve or whatever you want to call that stupid pitch to Tony Perez in Game 7 of the 75 World Series. What a moon shot as that ball is still climbing over the green monster. I know this is not the right answer but boy, if there was ever a time to greet a hitter at homeplate, that would have been it and "spaceman" would have been just the one to do it.

Can you tell I am not bitter and I am over it?
