I was surprised to see that the Braves had Eddie Mathews, who won two HR titles and hit 512 HRs in his career, batting second in both games of the 1963 doubleheader. Mathews was only 31 years old that season, and he hit .263. He was the kind of hitter that I would expect Dusty Baker would bat third, fourth or fifth in the lineup, not in a "table setter" place in the order such as second. However, Mathews drew 124 walks in 1963 and had a .399 OBP, so batting him second, in a lineup that also had Hank Aaron and Joe Torre in their primes, made a lot of sense.

This was a Monday afternoon makeup game, scheduled at 12:35 on what had been an off day for both clubs. Earlier that morning, the Reds fired general manager Jim Bowden, manager Bob Boone, and coaches Tim Foli and Tom Robson. Louisville manager Dave Miley was named interim manager, and would report to the club on Tuesday. Bench coach (and former Reds skipper) Ray Knight managed the Reds in this game. Brad Kullman and Leland Maddox would serve as interim co-GM's for the remainder of the season.
