How Does Pablo Sandoval Compare to Other Three-Homer-Hitters in the World Series? — Sports Survey of the Day
Pablo Sandoval joined an elite group of players on Wednesday night, when he became one of just four players to hit three home runs in a World Series game. The man most famous for a three-home-run performance is Reggie Jackson, who accomplished the feat in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series. Another famous Yankee, Babe Ruth, did it twice in his legendary career.
Albert Pujols is the most recent on the list (besides Sandoval). Pujols accomplished this in the 2011 World Series.
How does Sandoval's performance compare with these three greats? Ruth and Jackson are Hall of Famers, and Pujols will be one day. Is Sandoval right up there with them?
