one reminded me of.

There have been back to back home runs hit by the same two players in the same inning one time, and one time only.

Hint: one of the players shares another record for a rare single game home run feat, and it was done against the same team.

Even having the same two players go back to back in the same game is rare. At one point it didn't happen for over 70 years - and then happened twice in one week in 1994, first by Mo Vaughn and Tim Naehring of the Red Sox, and then five days later by Robin Ventura and Julio Franco of the White Sox.


I am going to guess the Hint (four guesses)

Mark Bellhorn
and/or
Kendrys Morales
and/or
Carlos Baerga
and/or
Fernando Tatis

They all had an usual home runs in the same inning. I have no idea who is the teammate.


Nope, nope, nope and . . . nope

He also hit four home runs in a game.

Both feats were against the White Sox, it pains me to say, and he was a former Sox player. But the Sox got Paul Konerko for him, so it worked out overall just fine.


I was sure the hint was

a home run from both sides of the plate in one inning.

You mentioned share. I missed that because Tatis was the only one to hit two grand slams in one inning.


I will take the liberty to confirm this for Sprack *
