The Exclusive Club That Brian McCann Just Joined

From SABR member Cyril Morong at Cybermetrics on May 19:

Brian McCann just did it a couple of days ago (pinch hitting in the 9th). I asked HR expert David Vincent (of SABR and Retrosheet) “Do you know how many times a player has hit a game tying HR in the 9th inning and then won the game with a HR in extra innings?” Here is the list he sent me, used with his permission. The hot link will take you to the boxscore and/or play-by-play for the game, as it does for McCann.
