History... July 5, 1935

Sibling fireworks exploded on July 5, 1935,
when bothers Al (Giants) and Tony
Cuccinello (Dodgers) each connected for
long balls in a game, thus becoming the first
brothers to hit homers for opposing teams
in the same contest.

Tony would enjoy a lengthy career that
included two All-Star game honors, slugging
94 homers over 15 seasons primarily with
the Boston Braves. For Al, the home run
would the second of his major league four
long balls, all coming in the ’35 season
which would be his only year in the bigs.
