THREE HOME RUNS IN A GAME

Major League Baseball Players Who Hit 3 Home Runs in 1 Game

Each of these sluggers had a great day at the plate, they all hit three home runs in the same game!

Three Home Runs in A Game Trivia (more at bottom):

Babe Ruth was the first player to hit three home runs in game at least once both leagues, once with the New York Yankees in 1930, and once in the National League, with the Boston Braves in 1935.

Merv Connors had eight career home runs, the fewest career home runs by any player with a 3-homer game on their resume.

Rafael Palmeiro (569 HRs), David Ortiz (541 HRs), and Gary Sheffield (509 HRs) are the only 500 Home Runs Club members without a 3-homer game.

Stan Musial had his second career 3-homer game when he was 41 years 229 days old, the oldest player in Major League history with a 3-homer game.

Every Major League Baseball player who hit three home runs in a game appears below, sorted by league first, then by date second, as researched by Baseball Almanac. Important Note : Bold names are Hall of Fame players. Italicized names were rookies at that time (under the rules of the day).

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"His ( Johnny Mize ) bat doesn't travel as far as anybody else's. He just cocks it and slaps, and when you're as big as he is, you can slap the ball into the seats. That short swing is wonderful." - New York Yankees Manager Casey Stengel in The 50 Greatest Players in St. Louis Cardinals History (Robert W. Cohen, Taylor Trade Publishing, Johnny Mize , 04/01/2015, Page 89)
