One thought on “Marvis Foley

  1. If Marv Foley’s Major League career ended in 1984, I saw his last at bat, and it was notable. I attended the final game of the 1984 season on September 30 at the old Arlington Stadium to see the Angels play the Texas Rangers. Foley grounded out to second baseman Rob Wilfong for the final out in Mike Witt’s perfect game. I kept score of the game and several years later at another Texas Rangers game I won a $50 coupon to a local supermarket because I knew the answer to the trivia question “Who made the final out in Mike Witt’s perfect game vs. the Rangers?”.
