"Just how good was Brooks Robinson ? Long before the Baltimore third baseman retired from the major leagues, players would be called 'Brooks' when they made a stellar defensive play. While the moniker typically stuff for no more than the one particular performance, there was a player whose glove work was so consistently spectacular that some unknowing observer might have thought Don Money's first name was the same as the Oriole legend." - Author Bill Ballew in The Pastime in the Seventies: Oral Histories of 16 Major Leaguers (McFarland Publishing, 10/01/2002, '7. Don Money', Page 74)

The Philadelphia Phillies played their first game in Veterans Stadium on April 10, 1971 Jim Bunning was the winning pitcher, Bill Stoneman took the loss. Entertainer Mike Douglas, whose daily talk show was taped in Philly, sang The Star-Spangled Banner. The emcee for the opening ceremonies was newly arrived Harry Kalas. Boots Day opened the game by grounding out to Jim Bunning . Larry Bowa had the stadium's first hit. Don Money led off the sixth inning and hit the first home run in the ballpark, a game tying (1-1) blast served up by Stoneman .

Did you know that Don Money hit the first home run of his career on Opening Day , April 8, 1969 , at Wrigley Field versus future Hall of Famer (1991) Fergie Jenkins ? The seventh inning homer helped the Phillies inch closer to the Cubs, who were winning 5-1. Money wasn't done and in that same game, top of the 9th inning, Don took Jenkins deep again, notching the first of fifteen multi-homer games in his career and adding a game tying home run to his resume. The Cubs, however, had a home run hitter of their own on the roster and Ernie Banks matched Money, taking Chris Short deep twice as well. The duo were the first two players in baseball history to each go deep twice in the same Opening Day game.

Don Money committed an error during the fifth inning of a game at Fenway Park on September 28, 1973 . Don Money committed an error during the first inning of a game at Metropolitan Stadium on July 17, 1974 . Between those two games (from different seasons), Don Money set the Major League record for most consecutive games without an error at third base in a season (86 games) and the American League record for most consecutive errorless games at third base in a career (88 games). Over the rest of the '74 season, Money committed only four additional errors, playing 157 games at third base and becoming the first and only third baseman in baseball history with 150+ games played at third, who committed less than six errors.
