On May 5, 1925, at Sportsman’s Park, 38-year-old Ty Cobb of the Detroit Tigers hits three home runs against the St. Louis Browns. Cobb’s explosion comes as part of a six-hit day, helping the Tigers to a 14-8 win over St. Louis. Cobb also ties a modern record with 16 total bases. The next day, Cobb will blast two more homers to set a record for homers in back-to-back games. Cobb’s outburst of power comes after he tells sportswriters to watch what he can do if he tries to hit home runs.
