1976 Topps #6 - Rennie Stennett Record Breaker

What a game that must have been!
It would be hard to be a Cub fan, come to Wrigley Field, and see your team pummelled 22-0.
The attendance was only 4,932, but there were probably a lot more fans who later said, "I was there" for the game.
Here's the boxscore (courtesy of I couldn't copy/paste it here -- too many problems with formatting. :(
Rick Reuschel lasted only 1/3 of an inning and gave up 8 earned runs. The Cubs managed only three hits with no walks for the whole game.

  1. I remember that card very well and thinking that Rennie must be pretty dang good. However, looking at it now, I'm struck by the notation on the last at bat. After tripling, Willie Randolph came in to run for Rennie. What's the deal? Was he tired?
