"It was awesome. It was seriously one of the coolest things I've seen. I felt like a little kid. I was jumping up and down, screaming at the top of my lungs. It had no effect on him (Ian Kinsler) running the bases, but I felt like I was a part of it. It's one of those things you don't see very often. To hit the cycle and go 6-for-6. Six hits is a good week for some guys. At the same time, I'm not surprised because Kins is one of the best hitters I've seen. That's unbelievable." - Teammate Chris Davis in The Dallas Morning News (Richard Durrett, 04/16/2009)

Did you know that Ian Kinsler was the first player in Texas Rangers history to join the 30 / 30 Club ( 30 Home Runs and 30 Stolen Bases in 1 Season ) twice?

In 1978, Bobby Bonds split time with the Chicago White Sox and Texas Rangers , ending the season with 31 home runs and 43 stolen bases - the first player to wear a Rangers uniform and join the 30 / 30 Club . In 2005, Alfonso Soriano hit thirty-six home runs and stole thirty bases, spending the whole season with Texas . Soriano and Bonds had each joined the 30 / 30 Club prior to those years, but neither was with Texas at the time. Kinsler, however, first joined the 30 / 30 Club in 2009 (31 HRs / 31 SBs) and then joined it again in 2011 (32 HRs / 30 SBs), both times as a Ranger .

On April 15, 2009 , Ian Kinsler hit for the cycle, joining fellow Texas Rangers cycle hitters Oddibe McDowell ( July 23, 1985 ), Mark Teixeira ( August 17, 2004 ) and Gary Mathews, Jr. ( September 13, 2006 ). Kinsler, however, also went 6-for-6 in the game , the first player in team history to have Six Hits in a 9-Inning Game ! [Note: Alfonso Soriano did go 6-for-6 on May 8, 2004 , but it was an extra-inning game / the first extra-inning 6-for-6 instance by a Ranger .]

The last player, before Kinsler, to go 6-for-6 and complete a cycle in the same game? Farmer Weaver , on August 12, 1890, one-hundred nineteen years earlier!

Billy Hamilton was the first player in baseball history to hit a lead-off home run and walk-off home run during the same game, accomplishing the feat on May 17, 1893. Since Sliding Billy , only two players have joined the "Lead-Off / Walk-Off In The Same Game Club" -- Ian Kinsler , on July 19, 2009 , and Chris Young , on August 7, 2010 .

Ian Kinsler is the first player in Major League history to hit lead-off home runs in his team's first two games of the season! On April 1, 2011 , Kinsler hit a 1-0 pitch from Jon Lester deep down the left field line for a "routine" Opening Day lead-off homer. On April 2, 2011 , Kinsler made history when he hit a 3-1 pitch from John Lackey out for his second consecutive lead-off home run to start the 2011 season- Mr. Ian "Lead-Off Home Run History" Kinsler.
