3 HRs in a World Series Game

Updated February 23, 2017 | Factmonster Staff

The Question:

Babe Ruth was one of two people to ever hit three home runs in a World Series game. Who is the other?

The Answer:

Actually, Babe Ruth did it twice: Oct. 6, 1926 and Oct. 9, 1928, both against St. Louis. Reggie Jackson did it once: Oct. 18, 1977 vs. Los Angeles.

Both players played for the New York Yankees. That's not too surprising, considering the Yankees have appeared in the World Series 39 times as of 2005.
