July 23, 1949 - On this day in history in the NCSHOF, Billy Goodman of the Boston Red Sox banged out three hits, part of a 19-hit Red Sox assault, as Boston rolled over the St. Louis Browns 16-5 at Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis.  Immortals Ted Williams and Bobby Doerr also had three hits each for Boston—in a game with all that scoring that was played in a mere 2:15.  Goodman, a Concord native, joined the NCSHOF in 1969.
