I'm pretty sure the ONLY 3 players to do it are Colbrunn, Yaz and Brett. I dunno, Ken. I guess it's up to the mods on whether that's yours or not. I have no idea how utter came up with that list...

That list came up in a google search. According to http://www.baseballlibrary.com Dimaggio did it.

May 20, 1948: At Chicago, Joe DiMaggio hits for the cycle and adds another homer to drive in six runs, as the Yanks coast, 13–2. DiMag almost has a 6th extra base hit, but left fielder Ralph Hodgin snares it at the wall.

Anyway the first 3 names I listed are Colbrunn, Brett and Yaz. DiMaggio is definitely the 4th. I'll do a little digging to see what I can find out on the others tonight.

Here's Kiners:

June 25, 1950: Ralph Kiner leads the Pirates to a 16–11 win at Brooklyn by hitting for the cycle, adding a 2nd home run, and driving in eight runs.
