Four Home Runs in Game
[ Author: westbaystars | Posted: May 7, 2005 9:38 AM | YBS Fan ]

The record is four home runs in a single game, shared by the following:
Four Home Runs in a Game
Player (Team) Date vs. Team
Iwamoto Yoshiyuki (Shochiku) 1951.08.01 vs. Hanshin
Oh Sadaharu (Giants) 1964.05.03 vs. Hanshin
Tony Solaita (Nippon Ham) 1980.04.20 vs. Nankai (Game 2)
Nigel Wilson (Nippon Ham) 1997.06.21 vs. Kintetsu
Furuta Atsuya (Yakult) 2003.06.28 vs. Hiroshima
The above include up to the end of the 2004 season.

I'll continue looking for three in a game.

I have a copy of the Chunichi newspaper 2001 Carp booklet, with all the Carp records in Japanese. My Japanese isn't great, but there is an entry in it that might mean (?!) Allen hit four home runs for Carp in a game in 1990 - can anyone verify?

Three Home Runs in Game- Julio Zuleta
[ Author: Guest: alfredo Franceschi | Posted: May 7, 2005 10:09 PM ]

Did the Panamanian player Julio Zuleta connect with 3 three home run in one game in the Japanese baseball League? I am interested in the date and complete box score, if possible.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
