While going deep not once, not twice, but thrice in a single game is an impressive feat to be sure—especially when it happens on the same day—it demands that we ask the obvious question:

It's a feat that has only been accomplished by 16 other players in MLB history, most recently by Josh Hamilton while with the Texas Rangers in a game against Baltimore last May.
