Keith Hernandez and Cliff Heathcote are the only players to have done what??

Only two firstbasemen to hit for the cycle?

Good grief, no. Lots of 1B's have hit for the cycle.

Get each of their four hits off four different pitchers?
04-13-2005, 04:40 PM
Others have done that also.

Hit for the cycle in an extra-inning game?
04-13-2005, 05:20 PM
That has been done many times.

The title is a very subtle hint.

Well, Hernandez's cycle was in a 19-inning game, and the "19th hole" is usually the last one, so perhaps Heathcote's was in a 19-inning game as well? I see on retrosheet, that the game Heathcote hit his in ended in an 8-8 tie. And now, baseball-almanac has the # of innings in Heathcote's cycle as.......19.
Man, I searched for about 2 hours the other day. Now I found it 5 minutes....sheesh.
Huh, Heathcote's was only 9 days into his pro career. His first game was June 4, 1918. He hit for the cycle on June 13, 1918.
