Brett Gardner hit a walk off home run against Tampa and the next game lead of with a home run. Was this ever done before by any other player?
Yes, it has been done by many players though not sure how many times in MLB history. And Brett Gardner became the third player in Yankees history to hit a home run leading off the game, the game after hitting a walk-off home run. Hall of Famer Joe Gordon did it in 1940 and Roberto Kelly in 1990.
