Cubs backup catcher Dioner Navarro makes a curtain call after hitting three home runs on Wednesday afternoon.

When Chicago Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro launched his third home run over the ivy-covered walls of Wrigley Field on Wednesday, he joined a club usually reserved for the greatest power hitters in the game.

 

 

 

Names like Babe Ruth, Johnny Mize, Sammy Sosa, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and—most recently—Miguel Cabrera come to mind when thinking of all the great sluggers that have hit three home runs in a game.
