Last Home Run Hit at Parc Jarry
Here's an easy trivia question, who has the most home runs at Stade Olympique in
The all-time PJ home run leader? Rusty Staub? Good guess, but while Le Grande Orange hit eight-two home runs during his Expos tenure, and nearly three hundred during his career, it's not him. The answer is the otherwise forgettable Ron Fairly, who spent eleven years with the Dodgers and six and a half with the Expos but nonetheless holds the home run record for the Expos' first home with fifty-eight. The leader visitor? My first thought was Hank Aaron, but, no, not him. Any guesses? The answer is "Pops" Willie Stargell, who hit seventeen of his career four hundred seventy-five home runs at Parc Jarry. And now finally, the Ultra Deluxe Bonus Points Trivia Questions, today's title. Who hit the last home run? Anyone? Update: The last home run ever hit there came off the bat of the Philles' Greg Luzinski.
