11 Major League Baseball Feats That Have Only Happened Once
  and ILL add only a few??? Back-to-back no hitters. Accomplished by Johnny Vander Meer, Cincinnati Reds, June 11-15, 1938. There have been 223 no hitters in MLB history (averaging out to about two per season), so it's insane that Vander Meer was able to throw no-hitters in back-to-back starts.

  Especially considering that he went on to have a lifetime W-L record of 119-121. Which was still good enough to get him into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame. (No, Pete Rose can't get into that one either. But Jose Rijo did.)  Two triple plays in one game. Accomplished by the Minnesota Twins, July 17th, 1990. This could also be expanded to the only team ever to turn two triple plays in one game... AND LOSE.

The Red Sox hit into two triple plays (one in the fourth, one in the eighth) but still beat the Twins, 1-0. Pitcher with fewest hands (1) throwing a no-hitter. Accomplished by Jim Abbott, September 4, 1993. Jim Abbott didn't have a right hand. He no-hit the Cleveland Indians in 1993. Kelly Scott One player sets two crazy one-time-only feats. Accomplished by Toby Harrah, Texas Rangers, 1976-77. These were both great one-time-only feats... then I saw they were both accomplished by the same player... and made the executive decision that his accomplishing of two one-time-only feats was, in and of itself, an 11 Points-worthy one-time-only feat.

On June 25, 1976, Harrah became the only shortstop ever to play every inning of a doubleheader and not get a single ball hit to him. Then, one year later, on August 27, 1977, Harrah and his Rangers teammate Bump Wills became the only players ever to hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs. 12 minutes ago · Like

  • Kelly Scott 2 grand slams in an inning. Accomplished by Fernando Tatis, St. Louis Cardinals, April 23, 1999. In the Cardinals-Dodgers game, Tatis hit two grand slams in the third inning -- both off of the same pitcher, Chan Ho Park. No player has ever hit two in one inning before or since; and no player has ever matched Tatis's eight RBIs in one inning either.

    Tatis was batting behind Mark McGwire that game (and that was during the McGwire SMASH! era). Those were Tatis's only two hits for the game, which the Cardinals won 12-5.
