1899 John McGraw becomes the first major leaguer to achieve a stolen base cycle when he swipes second base, third base, and home plate during the same inning of the same game. The 26 year-old Orioles' (NL) third baseman accomplishes the feat in the fourth frame of the team's 5-4 victory over the Boston Beaneaters at Baltimore's Union Park.
1964 Kansas City's Manny Jimenez, who didn't homer in 1963, connects for three in a 6-6 tie with the Orioles. The game is stopped by a special Baltimore curfew to permit the fireworks to take place.
