A traditional baseball hitting “cycle” involves a player reaching base in a game via a single, double, triple, and home run. Cycles are so rare at the highest level that they almost always receive standing ovations from home and visiting fans when they perform.
As noted by Rob Terranova of the MLB website and Matthew Neschis of the New York Post, St. Louis Cardinals infield prospect Chandler Redmond went one step further playing for the Double-A Springfield. Cardinals against the Amarillo Sod Poodles on Wednesday night. Redmond earned solo home runs, two runs, three runs and a grand slam in what became a blowout 21-4 win.
