"I get a kick out of watching a team defense me. A player moves two steps in one direction and I hit it two steps the other way. It goes right by his glove and I laugh." - Hall of Fame Player Rod Carew (Hit for the Cycle on May 20, 1970 with the Minnesota Twins)

American League Cycle Hitters



Leon Culberson , Bob Fothergill , Charlie Gehringer , Tony Lazzeri , Gary Mathews Jr. , Jose Valentin , and Bob Watson each hit for the cycle in the American League in natural order — meaning they had their single first, their double second, their triple third and their home run last.

Jay Buhner , Jimmie Foxx , Jason Kubel , Nap Lajoie , Tony Lazzeri , Bengie Molina , and Miguel Tejeda are the only American League cycle hitters who capped off their cycle with a grand slam instead of a "mere" home run.

Did you know that Bob Meusel is the only American League player to hit for the cycle three times? Use this data to make more trivia questions about cycle hitters .
