On September 17, 1920 — For the first time in major league history, two players hit for the cycle on the same day when Tigers’ outfielder Bobby Veach, who goes 6-for-6, and Giants first baseman George Burns accomplish the unique feat. This rare event will not occur on the same day again until 2008 when Diamondbacks shortstop Stephen Drew and Mariners third baseman Adrian Beltre each collect a single, double, triple, and a home run in different games played on September 1.
