Thanks for the info, Peter! Didn't realize that Chico was the only guy to ever pinch hit for Bench! I am guessing that if my autograph guy had been watching Bench mash all year at Buffalo, he probably couldn't believe he was getting pulled in the bottom of the 9th with the tying run on base! Reading through his wiki page, I was reminded of Chico's famous "Bench me or trade me!" quote! Classic! I did not realize he lost his life just a bit more than a month after becoming a US citizen in 1972, at only 33 years old.
