Five Stat Friday


2. Since 1913, there have been 248 cycles (when a player records at least one single, double, triple, and home run in the same game). Not that great of a stat. But, if you look closer, only one of those 248 cycles included a player recording two triples in that game. On September 7th, 1950, Hoot Evers, playing for the Detroit Tigers at the time, became the only player in the history of baseball to record a cycle while collecting two triples in the game. He still stands as the only player to ever do this. Oh, and to add a little more history to this game, the Tigers and Indians ended in a 13-13 tie. (h/t baseball reference)
