Also see . . . Jim Bottomley on Wikipedia. Bottomley (1900-1959), as of September 2020, holds the MLB record today for most runs batted in during one game; however, this was later tied by Mark Whiten (also a Cardinal) on September 7, 1993. Bottomley is also known as the only man to be sued for hitting a home run when a fan was hit by the ball when he was not looking. He was elected posthumously to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974 by the Veterans Committee, as well as being elected to the Cardinals Hall of Fame in 2014.
