This day in baseball

For the first time in baseball history, two players hit for the cycle on the same day on September 17, 1920.  Tigers’ outfielder Bobby Veach went 6-for-6 that day, while first baseman George Burns also accomplished the difficult feat to lead the Giants to a 4-3 victory in ten innings.  It would not be until 2008 that two players would hit for the cycle on the same day again.

    The Tigers weren’t playing the Giants, were they?
