Moon Shot?

In 1963, New York Yankees pitcher Gaylord Perry jokingly remarked that "they'll put a man on the moon before I hit a home run." On July 20, 1969, a few hours after Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, Perry hit his first, and only, home run.

[Perry retired in 1983 with a career record 314 wins, 265 losses -- and 1 homer.]
