On June 15, 1902, in a minor league game, Nig Clarke reportedly hits eight home runs for Corsicana against Texarkana. Because Sunday games were not allowed in Corsicana, the game was played at a much smaller field in Ennis, TX, where Clarke launched his homers over a short fence. Corsicana hit 21 homers in the game, winning 51-3. Ironically, Clarke hit just six homers in an eight-year major league career.
