An amazing week for baseball fans
The last ten days have been memorable ones for fans of baseball stats. On Sunday, Canadian first baseman Joey Votto hit three home runs for the Cincinnati Reds in a game against the Washington Nationals, an impressive accomplishment but one made more remarkable by the fact that his third homer was a grand slam. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, that was a first in Baseball history. Votto's big day comes on the heels of Josh Hamilton's news maker last Tuesday, when the Texas Rangers' center fielder hit four home runs, becoming just the 16th player in MLB history to do so. And all of this follows Chris Davis' amazing two innings for the Orioles on May 6 -- more on that in a second. It's all evidence, if you needed any, that sports are full of seldom-seen moments, just like these ones.
