Six Future Hall of Famers- Johnny Bench, Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson, Frank Robinson, Harmon Killebrew and Roberto Clemente-homer in the game to account forevery run scored by both teams. Jackson's blasts, however, is especially memorable. With one on in the bottom of the third, the A's slugger rips a Dock Ellis pitch into a light tower on the roof of Tigers Stadium-520 feet from home plate!
