Chuck Tanner is probably best remembered as a manager of four different teams, from 1970 through 1988, and a member of the 1,000 Wins Club ; however, did you know that on April 12, 1955 , during his Major League debut, Tanner became the first and only Milwaukee Braves player to hit a home run during his first at-bat (and it was off the first pitch ) and the first pinch hitter to hit a home run run in his first at-bat.
