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?
No, they were not, but it sure would’ve been cool if they were!
The Giants were playing Pittsburgh, and the Tigers played Boston.
