No one has ever hit more than 4 HR's in a game, although Cameron came ridiculously close. There have, however, been 2 players who hit 5 HR's in the same day, in double-headers. Name either (or both) of these players. One of them is not amazingly difficult (i.e. he was an all-time great). The second one is terribly obscure.

Yes sir! It was Stan the Man. Score the run please, Arlo. The second person to achieve this feat was actually in attendance the day that Stan did it.

He was the starting 1st baseman for the Padres from 1969-1974, as well as logging a few games with Houston in '67-'68, and with Detroit, Oakland, and Montreal in '75 and '76. This player hit 173 HR's for his career, never more than 38 in a season.

Any guesses on his name, or should I just reveal the answer here? :->

Ah, I think I remember this now... was it Nate Colbert? Or am I confusing records? :-o

I think it's because a baseball card was made commemorating that feat the year after it happened - not entirely sure though... :-D
