Video: Cardinals Prospect Hits Home Run Cycle

Cardinals prospect Chandler Redmond did something very few could do.

The Cardinals infield prospect hit a solo, two-run, three-run, and grand slam homer to complete the extremely rare “home run cycle” which has only been done once before in the minor leagues.

Only one other time has this feat been accomplished in the modern era of the game — by Tyrone Horne on July 27, 1998, for the then-Cardinals affiliate Double-A Arkansas Travelers of the Texas League. It’s never been done in the Major Leagues.

Here’s the incredible video of Redmond’s home run cycle.

Redmond spoke about what went through his head during his historic accomplishment.

“So after I hit the grand slam, I had a little thought creep into my mind about maybe the cycle. But then I brushed it off real quick. I was like, ‘Come on, this was only my second time with a multihomer game in pro ball,’” Redmond said. “But then I go up there and hit the solo shot and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I can do it.’ So then walking up for that last at-bat and seeing two guys on, I’m thinking, ‘Oh my gosh, everything is lining up, you can do this. So just stay calm and stay within yourself, but if you get a chance to get a ball to hammer, you better not miss it.’”
