May 27, 1971 - On this day in history in the NCSHOF, Tommy Helms of the Cincinnati Reds had an excellent game at the plate, but the rest of the team was pretty well held in check as the Reds lost to Dock Ellis and the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 at Three Rivers Stadium. Helms had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and scored two runs for the Reds.  The Charlotte native joined the NCSHOF in 2013.
