1999 Fleer Brilliants #142 - Brian Simmons

On this day in 1998, Brian Simmons became the third player in franchise history to homer from both sides of the plate in a game.

Simmons managed this feat off of Kansas City Royals pitchers Brian Barber and Allen McDill. Brian drove in five runs, while the Sox cruised to a 13-5 win.

Ken Henderson was the first to accomplish this feat in 1975. Tim Raines became the second to do so for the Sox in 1993. Jose Valentin seems to own this category for the Sox. Jose homered from both sides of the plate in the same game three times for the Pale Hose.
