It is known in state tourney lore all these years later as the Holy-Ta-Moley Homer.

Anyone who played town-team baseball with excellence for decades — and has a home run named after him — belongs in the Minnesota Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame.

Patrick Reusse can be heard 3-6 p.m. weekdays on AM-1500. preusse@startribune.com
