On September 27, 1938 — In Detroit’s 10-2 rout of St. Louis in the nightcap of a twin bill, Hank Greenberg hits two home runs, both off Bill Cox, to extend his major league-leading total to 58. The pair of round-trippers gives the Tiger first baseman a total of 39 at Briggs Stadium, establishing a major league record for the most round-trippers hit at home in one season.
