The Ole Ball Game

I have three cycle-related questions:

by Alan Kelly
(Rockville, Maryland, USA)

Benjie Molina ~ Most recent to hit for cycle in only 4 plate appearances.

Benjie Molina ~ Most recent to hit for cycle in only 4 plate appearances.

Alan asked: (1) Has any MLB player ever hit for the cycle when having only 4 plate appearances in the game?


(2) Has any MLB player ever achieved the cycle by hits in four consecutive innings?

(3) Has any MLB player ever achieved the cycle when the home run was the the only home run of his career?


Rick answered: Alan, thank you for your question!

I was only able to locate an answer for your first question.

I am assuming no one has achieved number two or three. Records such as these are inherent in the game and would be available if they had been achieved.

There are 23 MLB players who have hit for the cycle in only 4 plate appearances. The listing is most recent to earliest.

1. Benjie Molina ( Pictured above)

2. Aubrey Huff

3. Chone Figgins

4. Vladimir Guerrero

5. Brad Wilkerson

6. Jeff Frye

7. Eric Chavez

8. Todd Helton

9. Neifi Perez

10. John Valentin

11. Ray Lankford

12. Eric Davis

13. Mike Greenwell

14. Mike Easler

15. Mike Cubbage

16. Chris Spier

17. Bob Watson

18. Jim Fregosi

19. Jim King

20. Dixie Walker

21. Gee Walker

22. Ray Schalk

23. Dave Bancroft


This is truly an amazing feat. It is hard enough to get 4 consecutive hits, let alone hit for the cycle when you do it.

Yours in baseball,

Rick
