On Saturday, July 4, 1964, at the Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, Dominian Manuel Emilio Jimenez (Elmuro) hit three home runs, making him the first Dominika to achieve this feat in the major leagues.
A fireworks display was scheduled to commemorate the independence of the United States before midnight, so the game ended in a draw with six runs. As a result, Jimenez was unable to participate in the 9th round.RELATED
The first home run was achieved in the third episode against Robin Roberts’ shipment, and in the fifth episode the same pitcher. The third was dispatched to the eighth Dick Hall.
Jimenez, the third in the Kansas City Athletics lineup, was a three-hour match with 37,922 fans, scoring 4-4 with three runs and five RBIs.
In the 1963 season, he didn’t hit a home run in 60 games and 181 at-bats.
Jimenez made his major league debut on April 11, 1962 against the Minnesota Twins in Kansas, playing 3-4 against Cuban star Camilo Pascual.
This is how the memorable rookie season began, when he sealed an average of 0.301 (8th in the American League) with 11 home runs and 69 RBIs.
Jimenez was considered an exceptional hitter in the minor league. In his first professional season in 1958, he led the Northern League with an average batting average of .340 while playing for the Oakrea Bears. After hitting .325 at the Pacific Coast League’s Vancouver Mounties in 1961, he was acquired by A in a multiplayer trade.
In 1961, Jimenez was traded from the Milwaukee Braves to the Kansas City Athletics. His last match was on May 22, 1969, at the age of 30 years and 189 days against the Cubs, playing 0-1 against San Francisco.
On December 11, 2017, he died in New York City at the age of 79.
