Welcome to my perfect part of NW Ohio where I live and where Perrysburg High School junior, Luke Borer, hit for a home run cycle Monday night in a wild 22-14 win against league rival Anthony Wayne. How rare is the home run cycle? It’s never been done in Major League baseball; it’s only been done once in minor league baseball and it’s believed to have only been done once in college baseball history — according to the historians.

The home run cycle was completed by Danielle Gibson of Arkansas back in February, making her only the second known college softball player to ever do it.

Add it all up and what you have from Borer is something just about as rare as it gets in baseball history. Hitting for a home run cycle is so rare that when Tyrone Horne did it for the Double-A Arkansas Travelers in 1998, his bat ended up in the Baseball Hall of Fame.

There just might be something in the air this year with the home run cycle. According to to the Northwest Georgia News, a middle schooler had a home run cycle during a game on April 4. In 2017, a Maryland softball player accomplished the treasured cycle in a 25-15 loss.

In the one documented college baseball home run cycle, Florida State’s Marshall McDougall had a historic day at the plate — 6 home runs.

That day, in fact, he set a still-standing NCAA single game records for home runs (6), RBI (16) and total bases (25). And, as you will see in the video – there were no cheap shots for McDougall on that record-setting day.


Here’s another college guy who hit for the home run cycle – Todd Meyer from Alvernia College in a 2002 game against Wilmington College. Meyer hit the home run cycle in a five inning game. His line that day was the home run cycle, 5 for 5, 12 RBI, 6 runs scored over those five innings in a 36-15 Alvernia victory. Meyer would go on to win D3 player of the year honors; in total he hit 25 home runs and had 107 RBI in 45 games.
