Did you know that Ray Poat accomplished a truly unique batting feat called the season cycle in 1941? Originally named and researched by Madison McEntire

Ray Poat Season Cycle

Purchased from the last-place Baltimore Orioles of the International League, Ray Poat joined the New York Giants on August 26, 1947, and was immediately pressed into service. He made a sensational debut the next night, August 27, by leading the Giants to a 6-4 win over the St. Louis Cardinals at the Polo Grounds. In addition to going the distance, (allowing eight base hits, four walks and claiming five strikeouts), Poat shocked the Cardinals with a homer and a triple. The Redbirds jumped to a 3-0 lead against the 29-year old right-hander, getting two runs in the 2nd and a solo homer by Terry Moore in the fifth. The Pirates began their rally by getting two in the bottom of the fifth, the last coming when Poat tripled against Harry (The Cat) Brecheen, scoring Sid Gordon. The score was tied going into the bottom of the sixth, thanks to a 6th-inning RBI single by Johnny Mize and a great catch by Willard Marshall on Stan Musial’s smash to the right field wall with two men on in the 7th. Poat put the Giants ahead in the bottom of the 7th by leading off against Brecheen with a homer into the right field stands. On September 1, Poat posted another complete game (allowing eleven hits), and pitched the New Yorkers to a 12-2 win over the Boston Braves in the second game of a double-header at the Polo Grounds. He knocked in the first two Giant runs by doubling against Clyde Shoun in the bottom of the 2nd. Poat completed his “season cycle” during a 2-0 loss to the Braves at Braves Field on September 26. Poat singled against Hall of Famer Warren Spahn and yielded just seven hits in eight innings but was done in by Boston’s Bob Elliot who had two doubles and a single.
