Today's Card ... Clyde Barnhart --- 1920
October 1-2, 2014
On This Date in Major League
Baseball History... October 2, 1920
While we are unsure of the year for this
Clyde Barnhart cardboard, we can be
secure in our thoughts that Barnhart holds
a distinction that will last for ages.
A rookie third baseman for the 1920
Pirates, Barnhart was the only player to
collect a hit in each of the three games for
Major League Baseball’s last triple-header.
In a baseball oddity, the Reds and Pirates
played three games on October 2, 1920,
with the Reds winning two of the three
Barnhart or “Pooch” would double in
Game 1, a 13-4 Reds victory. He would
likewise double in the second game, which
also went to the Reds, this time by a 7-3
score. Barnhart would single in the Game 3
helping the Pirates to a 6-0 victory.
The following is an record of baseball’s
triple-headers by SABR writer A.D.
