Hitting for the cycle From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search It has been suggested that Natural cycle be merged into this article or section. ( Discuss Eric Davis hit for the cycle in 1989 In baseball , a player hits for the cycle when he hits a single , a double , a triple , and a home run in the same game, though not necessarily in that order. Collecting the hits in that order is known as a natural cycle The feat is rare in Major League Baseball as it requires a game of no fewer than four hits, and the unusual combination of a home run, which requires a batter to hit for some power, and a triple, which requires a batter to have speed on the basepaths and a favorable fall of the ball. There are only two current major league teams that have not had a player hit for the cycle: the San Diego Padres and Florida Marlins . No player has ever hit for the cycle in a post-season game. The rarity of hitting for the cycle is reflected in the fact that of the ten players who have had 3,000 career hits and 300 career home runs, only four have ever hit for the cycle: Carl Yastrzemski Dave Winfield George Brett and Stan Musial
