Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In 1966, while a member of the Cincinnati Reds, he (Art Shamsky) tied a Major League record by hitting four consecutive home runs in four at-bats over two games. He is the only player in Major League history to hit three home runs in a game who was not in the starting lineup when the game began. Also, two of thw three home runs came in extra innings. The fourth home run was hit as a pinch-hitter in the next game. The bat used to accomplish the feature of four home runs in a row is currently on display in Baseball's Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York." - Art Shamsky (Art Shamsky, 2015, 'Biography Page', Source )
