these two teammates are the only players to hit back to back inside the park homers. In other words, player A hit one, and the next batter, player B, also hit one.


a couple of hints

both players played SS at one time or another and one has a famous base-stealing dad.


Is one of them . . .

(question redacted)

If not, then I don't remember it.

Edit: was gnawing at me and I cheated looking it up. When I saw who the other player was, I do remember it.


Let's go to Mel Allen and the video ....

According to the comments section of the video, a poster says; "I've always been told that this was the only time in MLB history as well, but apparently it also happened in 1946. Marv Rickert and Eddie Waitkus hit back-to-back inside the park home runs for the Cubs (against the Giants) on June 23rd of that year."

From the link, apparently so.



damn, I hate it when I trust an incorrect source

but what makes the earlier two even more special was the Rickert and Waitkus were both rookies.

in (or out) of baseball. While he was not the slowest catcher out there and ran pretty well, he was still a catcher.

I was calling friends "DID YOU SEE THAT???"
