    The last St. Louis Browns home run was hit by Billy Hunter, who is still alive.

    I wonder if any player has done this in a postseason game.

    Wow. How about this....

    The last 2 HRs by a Cincinnati Redleg were both by Buddy Gilbert (1st inning, 9-26-1959; 6th inning, 9-27-1959).
    And they were the only 2 of his Major League career! Also, his only 2 Major League RBIs.
