Correct. I can't pinpoint the date, but I do know that umpires were giving the neighborhood play at the ML level when I first started attending ML games in 1963...some four years before Carew made it to the majors.

And it was a very large neighborhood indeed, more like the entire zip code.

Rewrite: Hall-of-Fame-bound Rod Carew got his knee torn in half getting taken out on a pivot, and the neighborhood was more uniformly accepted as a result.

Zip codes were introduced in 1963. We hadn't yet hung that label on the neighborhood play. I remember my dad referring to "Zones". (God, I'm getting old.)
