Two players homer in their first two at-bats

In Major League history, a total of 129 players have homered in the first at-bat they have batted, but of this group only two hit two home runs in their first two at-bats that they used up. They were Bob Nieman, of the Carmelites of Saint Louis, on Friday, September 14, 1951, at Fenway Park in Boston.

Nieman, who fired the first in the second inning and then walked one out in the third inning, both were against Mickey McDermontt.

The other to reach it is Keith McDonald, catcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, who did it in two different games.

The first of these was produced by pinch-hitting in place of Edgar RenterĂ­a in the eighth inning, on Tuesday, July 4, 2000, against Andy Larkin, from Cincinnati, and in the next match played by the Cardinals, which was held on Thursday, July 6. against the Reds themselves in the second act and the second shift he consumed in the Majors, he bounced the ball again to thus join Nieman as the only players in the history of the big top to perform this feat.

Did you know: Barry Bonds beat out ten members (Ernie Banks, Eddie Murray, Mel Ott, Eddie Matthews, Ted Williams, Willie McCovey, Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, Jimmie Foxx and Mickey Mantle of the 500 home run hitters’ bracket during the year 2001? A tremendous season.
