St. Louis Cardinals minor leaguer Chandler Redmond has accomplished what only one other known professional baseball player has ever done before: the home run cycle. The 25-year-old farmhand hit a solo homer, two-run homer, three-run homer, and grand slam in the same game with Triple-A Springfield on Wednesday. Redmond entered Wednesday's contest against the Amarillo Sod Poodles - the Arizona Diamondbacks' affiliate - hitting.228/.314/.431 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs over 72 games.
The home run cycle has only been managed once before at any pro level - in 1998 by Tyrone Horne, who also happened to be in the Cardinals system at the time. Horne played for the Arkansas Travelers in Double-A but never made it to the majors, playing 11 minor-league seasons and one campaign in Korea. While rare in the pros and unheard of at the major-league level - with only 18 four-homer games ever recorded in MLB history - the feat has been accomplished a handful of times at the collegiate level, including in softball by Samantha Posey, sister of former San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey.
