This day in baseball: Hitting for the tricycle

On July 24, 1931, Floyd “Babe” Herman hit for the cycle for the second time in just ten days.  This was the third time in Herman’s career that he had accomplished the feat, making him one of only three players in history to do so.  “Long John” Reilly and Bob Meusel have also hit for the cycle three times in their careers.
