Man, youre a genius. If hitting 3 homeruns in a game is impossible, then surely giving up 3 homeruns in a game is possible. ;-D


dude, your logic is all wrong. lay off the sauce, bro.
you meant: if hitting 3 games in a game is unpossible, then giving up 3 homeruns in a game is possible. however, we all know that hitting 3 games in a game is impossible, so that means giving up 3 homeruns in a game is mispossible.

Surely if there were any players who had hit 3 HRs in a game, there would a list of some kind. But is there? I rest my case.

See, a hitter only gets 4 maybe 5 plate appearances in a game. It's mathematically impossible for him to homer 3 times. But a pitcher may face 20 or more hitters, he stands a much better chance at giving up 3 HR. It would be a shame if his manager pulled him from the game after he'd only been able to give up 2.

I don't think we would have any trouble at all finding out if a pitcher had ever done this and generating a list of some kind.

now the real trick would be to make a list of both pitchers and hitters who have given up/hit 3 homers in a game...as in, of all the pitchers who have given up 3 homers in a game, which are the ones who gave up 3 to one guy? Of course, that's assuming that a guy could hit 3 homers in a game, which is obviously impossible. But if it were possible, what a list that would be!

I don't know why we need all these technical terms and misleading questions when we're discussing such a mythically impossible feat. The only word we need here is "scrappy." As in "Scrappy Doo barked at the man who thought hitting 3 homers in one game was possible."

Guys, can you at least take this thread seriously? This guy wants help. Don't go naming people who have already been named, etc. etc.
