It was July 17, 1990 at Yankee Stadium. Bo Jackson hit 3 dingers in three at-bats in the first 5-innings of the game!! The Yankees were already 20 games under .500 and the stadium was half empty, and it only cost $50 to get scalped seats right behind home plate, and the small crowd was electrified. Bo had two or three more plate appearances to try for number 4.

Well, in the bottom of the 6th, Neon Deion Sanders, batting .150, hit a lame drive into the right-center gap. Bo Jackson (playing center) dove for it - and didn't get up. And Sanders ran faster than any human being I've ever seen. He was half-way to third when anyone else would have been half-way to second. Sanders had an inside the parker, and Jackson was out of commission for over a month.

And by the way, Jackson hit a homer in his first at bat on August 26, giving him 4 home runs in 4 consecutive at bats.

I'll never forget it.

However I was a season ticket holder to Saturday Yankee games from 98 through last season. I've also attended many games at Tropicana Field the last 2 seasons. So there's a chance i've seen 4. John Mabry (Seattle) and Chili Davis (Yankees) both in 1999 and Tomas Perez (Rays) in 2006 would fit this in Yankee Stadium. Johnny Peralta (Indians) in 2008 in Tampa as well. Back in my younger days i did do a scorecard so it's possible i did both Mabry's and Davis's.
