Carlos Delgado Hits Four

Carlos Delgado's 4 Home Run EffortCarlos Delgado hit four straight home runs vs the Tampa Bay Devil Rays last night at SkyDome. He's the first Blue Jay to do so and only the 15th player in the history of Major League baseball to accomplish the feat. Furthermore, he's only the sixth player ever to homer in four straight at-bats.

A night for the ages for Delgado, but as my brother Stephen wrote me this morning, "Delgado forgets how to play when the heat is on! But, when the heat is off, LOOK OUT!!"

Here's the complete list of the "4-in-1" club: Bobby Lowe, Boston 1894, Ed Delahanty, Philadelphia 1896, Lou Gehrig, New York 1932, Chuck Klein, Philadelphia 1936, Pat Seerey, Chicago 1948, Gil Hodges, Brooklyn 1950, Joe Adcock, Milwaukee 1954, Rocky Colavito, Cleveland 1959, Willie Mays, San Francisco 1961, Mike Schmidt, Philadelphia 1976, Bob Horner, Atlanta 1986, Mark Whiten, St. Louis 1993, Mike Cameron, Seattle 2002, Shawn Green, Los Angeles 2002, Carlos Delgado, Toronto 2003.
