John Paciorek remains the greatest one-day wonder in Major League Baseball history, chuckling about that fact Thursday afternoon as the 40th anniversary of his one and only game with the Houston Colt .45s approaches.

Jeff Banister has worn a baseball uniform to work for more than a quarter-century, first as a minor league player and instructor and for the last four seasons in the big leagues as a bench coach with the Pittsburgh Pirates. But if you blinked at the wrong time, you missed his entire major league playing career: one at-bat 22 summers ago on a warm, cloudy evening in Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Stadium.
