    You are correct, as usual. Unfortunately, there's no way of knowing how many of these were taken away from him (or anyone else.)

    And more trivial pursuit: Aaron had a home run taken away from him when he stepped out of the batter's box before knocking one over the fence.

    What was the situation in the Harvey Haddix game? I believe Aaron was called out for missing a base in the 13th, adding to the craziness. Was that on the Adcock homer?

    It was actually Adcock who was called out for passing Aaron on the bases. Aaron had touched second base and then jogged off the field, not realizing Adcock's hit had cleared the fence. The final score should've been 3-0 but it ended up 1-0, with Felix Mantilla getting credit for the only run scored.

    Against Curt Simmons of St. Louis in 1965. Bob Uecker was the catcher who complained to the ump that Aaron had lunged out of the batter's box to get a hold of Simmons' change-up.
