    The last NY Giant to hit a homer ... Gail Harris ... has died. there was surprisingly a lot of media about this, such as:

    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.
