"Don't compare me to Babe Ruth. God gave me the opportunity and the ability to be here at the right time, at the right moment, just like he gave Babe Ruth when he was playing. I just hope I can keep doing what I've been doing - keep taking care of business." - Sammy Sosa

Since a four home run game is so incredibly rare, we have dedicated an entire page to this amazing slugging feat.
The following pitchers have each had two games with two home runs hit during those games during the same season: Wes Ferrell (1934, Boston AL), Don Newcombe (1955, Brooklyn NL), Jack Harshman (1958, Baltimore AL), Dick Donovan (1962, Cleveland AL), Tony Cloninger (1966, Atlanta NL) & Rick Wise (1971, Philadelphia NL).
Hitting two home runs in a game is a feat, but imagine for a moment hitting a home run left-handed then hitting another in the same game right-handed. We have every instance in major league history where a batter has had a home run from each side of the plate during the same game in our Fabulous Feats section.
