Heard a rumor about a guy who hit 3 homers in one game!

Postby mkultra » Wed May 25, 2011 1:24 pm

Cafe in-jokes aside, is this the Year of the Three Home Run Game? It's happened at least twice so far this week (Hart, Quentin), and seems to be happening with some regularity this season. Does anyone know how often it's happened so far this year, and what the rate is like compared to past years?

Supposedly Bautista, Beltran, Giambi have done it this season too, but I think it's just a Yahoo error, because everyone knows three homers in one game is impossible.

I believe Corey Hart is the first player to have an appendectomy and hit 3 HR in a game

can we find out if anyone with a strained oblique has every hit 3 hr's in a game. That would be even more impressive!

I'd be more impressed if he hit three homers while having an appendectomy.
