Bob Prince loved to say his full name. Alvin O’Neal McBean. One of my favorites as a kid. Thanks for the good memories, AOM.

I remember the Gunner calling him that. I also remember a game at Forbes Field which my father and I attended and McBean was the starting pitcher, and I believe he hit a grand slam homer. Maybe the game was in 1967 or 68.

McBean Grand Slam Game
Thanks for posting the box score. I noticed time of game 2 hours and 14 minutes. Add another hour to that game today.

I took another look at that box score and 4 players including McBean were selected in the year end expansion draft by the Padres or Expos. The other players included Mota, Wills, and my favorite Clendenon. Coming in 1969 we would see the Baby Bucs, Hebner, Oliver, and Robertson.
