First time ever I think (3 HR's in one game)

Postby kab21 » Thu Mar 12, 2009 3:02 pm

Craig Monroe just hit 3 HR's today against the Twins. I don't think that has ever happened before. And I'm so pissed that they took him out for Jeff freaking Salazar.

False alarm everyone! The spring training exchange rate is .60, so Monroe only hit 1.8 HR.

Hitting 1.8 HRs in a game is in a way even more impressive than 3.0 HRs in a game...

Surely not, although the 3.0 is at least possible in theory...but since it's never been done, a theory it remains.

It was only 2/3 of a game so it's more like 2.7 HR's.
