TNS Introduces…Statistics from the Cheap Seats

How many homeruns have been hit on a Thursday in a dome?  What is the most touchdowns thrown in one game by a quarterback?  What are the least number of points scored by an NBA team in one game?  These are all interesting questions that you may never ask, but we have decided to report on.  So without further comment, TwoNateShow.com would like to introduce “Statistics from the Cheap Seats”.  You may not see them everyday, but when you do, you may learn something new.

Today’s stat is the most homeruns hit by one batter in one 9-inning game in the Major Leagues.  I’d like to thank baseball-almanac.com for this statistic.  There have been 12 different times that a player has hit 4 homeruns in one game.  4 were American League players while 8 were from the National League.  Enjoy the statistic, but it won’t help you get a new job, or anything…

  1. Can’t believe I didn’t see a tribute to Smoltzy from you two….I’m a little more than disappointed. I sure hope I just missed it. Wow, things sure have changed…says a lot about loyalty. Do you guys still live in Atlanta???

  2. Patrick Fleming Says:

    By the way, Rocky Colavito hit his four home runs consecutively. Who else did?

  3. I’d like to see a stat on the player with the most OCD rituals in one nine-inning game. I’m guessing Nomar would have to be at the top…

    Or maybe a stat on which pitcher shakes of his catcher the most in one inning of pitching…

    Or how many times per inning, for both teams, that – uh – “adjustments” are made. Apparently MLB hands out some ill-fitting equipment.

    Jabin, just saw these comments. We did do a tribute to #29. Perhaps this means you aren’t starting your morning every single day by reading the TwoNate show each day??? What’s that about? 🙂
