This Day In History

Tony Lazzeri
June 3rd
1932 – Lou Gehrig and teammate Tony Lazzeri hit four home runs in one game, and Tony Lazzeri hit for the natural cycle. Hitting for the natural cycle is when a player hits a single, a double, a triple, and a home run in that order and within one game.  Both of the feats are less common than a perfect game, which has occurred 21 times in 120 years of baseball.
