The Chinese calendar designated 1984 as the year of the rat and ironically it was in May of 1984, with Cleveland in town and Bruce Hurst on the hill, that fans watched as a rat made its way from the bowels of Fenway onto the grass beside the Red Sox batter's box. Without hesitation Jurak came over from his position at first base, scooped up the rodent and deposited it in a dugout trashcan for safekeeping. This little bit of handiwork left Jurak with the unusual boxscore line of four at bats, no hits and one relocated rat. Jurak was released by the Sox after the 1985 season and played out the remainder of his career with Oakland and San Francisco.
2 bats down 81 to go.
