This day in baseball: RBI King of the game

Henry “Heinie” Zimmerman of the Cubs had a monster game against the Boston Braves on June 11, 1911.  With two home runs, a triple, and two singles, Zimmerman collected a team record nine RBIs as Chicago won in a 20-2 rout.  It is a record that continues to stand today, only being tied by one Sammy Sosa on August 10, 2002.
