This Week in 1932, Yankee Hitter Tony Lazari Accomplishes a Natural Cycle
A natural cycle is when a baseball player bats a single, double, triple, and homer in a row, in a that order. It has only happened 13 times in baseball history, plus he’s the only player in history to cap his natural cycle with a grand slam.  Sadly for him, his career day is often overlooked because it was the same game in which his teammate Lou Gehrig hit four home runs – the first time that had happened in modern baseball history.  Basically, this is one of the most statistically improbable baseball games ever.
