Ed Delahanty, Philadelphia Phillies, July 13, 1896
Lou Gehrig, New York Yankees, June 3, 1932
Gil Hodges, Brooklyn Dodgers, August 31, 1950
Joe Adcock, Milwaukee Braves, July 31, 1954
Rocky Colavito, Cleveland Indians, June 10, 1959
Willie Mays, San Francisco Giants, April 30, 1961
Bob Horner, Atlanta Braves, July 6, 1986
Mark Whiten, St. Louis Cardinals, September 7, 1993
Mike Cameron, Seattle Mariners, May 2, 2002
Shawn Green, Los Angeles Dodgers, May 23, 2002

3 did it in extra-inning games:
Chuck Klein, Philadelphia Phillies, July 10, 1936
Pat Seerey, Chicago White Sox, July 18, 1948
Mike Schmidt, Philadelphia Phillies, April 17, 1976


And here are the players who have had multiple 3-homerun games in the same season:

3 games: Sammy Sosa, Chicago Cubs, 2001

2 games:
Johnny Mize, St. Louis Cardinals, 1938
Johnny Mize, St. Louis Cardinals, 1940
Ralph Kiner, Pittsburgh Pirates, 1947

I don't see Chipper anywhere on that list. I'm pretty sure he hit 3 HR in a game at least once this season. Is there anyway to find out if he has hit 3 HRs in a game more than once this season? If nobody can find out, could they try and find out if anyone has ever been able to hit 3 HR in multiple games in a season?

Come on Nick, I know you can do it.


486. ;-D

That would make Markakis #1 overall draft pick next year. ;-D

Watch the Tex, Reyes, and Chipper homers come out in droves now. ;-7

Obviously I'm kidding but I just couldn't resist any longer. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.

I remember when Tuffy Rhodes hit 3 HRs in a game on Opening Day. He actually was on pace for 486 HRs in a season. 8-o

I think that Markakis guy from Baltimore just did it a couple days ago, but maybe I'm mistaken.

A guy on my softball team hit 3 HR the other day. It was funny because there are no fences, and he hit one by the left fielder, so the 1B started yelling "jeez man you know he hits it far, play deeper" and the LF was like "get lost" (edited for cafe friendliness) and they both went back and forth with the "get lost" for a couple exchanges. Funny stuff.

But yeah, he hit 3 HR. And we still lost :-t
