I think Allen used a 40 or 42 ounce bat. I was always amazed at how fast he could turn on a ball with that club and even with a huge hitch in his swing. Great power hitter played one year with the...

I did not notice a restriction on the betting parameters either in the promotion. I did bet Pimlico though for the day Saturday and they did not remove the bonus for me.

Gibby played, I think, for maybe a year with the Harlem Globetrotters too. He owned the plate and batters dug in at their own risk. McCarver always said he was scared to ever go out to the mound...
