Adcock, Joseph Wilbur
▪ 2000
“Joe” 
      American baseball player who hit 336 home runs in a 17-year career in the major leagues; although he once hit four home runs in a single game and established the major league record for total bases (18), his most famous hit came on May 26, 1959, when, playing for the Milwaukee Braves, he ended the game in which the Pittsburgh Pirates' Harvey Haddix had pitched 12 perfect innings (b. Oct. 30, 1927, Coushatta, La.—d. May 3, 1999, Coushatta).
