Watch this date 1983: A Johnny Bench Night homer!

September 17, 1983

A sellout crowd of 53,790 jammed Riverfront Stadium to celebrate Johnny Bench Night. 

Bench was honored in pre-game ceremonies with a new truck, a two-seat fishing boat and a two week golf vacation in Scotland. 

Bench sent the crowd into a frenzy with a game-tying, two-run homer in the third inning.

The homer was the 389th and final of his career.
