    What ex-White Sox player was one of only two players to get a hit off of Gibson and Carlton in the same game?  The other was Joey Amalfitano had two singles.  The ex-Sox had two doubles!

    P.S.  One of my very early favorites.

    I figured it would have had to have been when Carlton was really young and pitching in relief and since his rookie card is a 1971 Topps, it had to be before then. Then, recalling who Nomads has said was his favorites - Minoso, Landis, Fox, Aparicio, Pierce, and Allen, the only ones that were even in the NL were Landis, Fox, D. Allen. (pierce pitched but doubt he had 2 doubles in a game).. so I would guess Landis only b/c Fox was probably dead from his tobacco juice before Carlton was in the league, and Jim said one of his "very early favorites", excluding "don't call me Ritchie".
    My only hesitancy on the guess is whether Landis actually played that long?

    Tom Seaver?  I know he's a pitcher but was a decent hitting pitcher and pitched back when complete games were more common than not, so could have faced a starter (Gibby) and reliever (Carlton).  Probably doesn't fit Nomads' "early faves" criteria, though.

    Do you think it could have been in an AllStar game?

     That was my first thought, but he mentioned Joey Amalfitano, no way was he ever an allstar.

    No, but because he got his hits on a regular game doesn't preclude the other being in am All Star gsme

    Tim, nice job.  Jim Landis it was, with the Astros.  I'll see if I can refind the link I saw this in.

    Here is the box score from it (only 6th game of the season)

    Here is the story with a 1967 Landis card image that caught my eye.
