Playing All 9 Positions In A Single Game - On September 8, 1965 Bert Campaneris became the first player to play every position in a Major League game.  

 

This record is unbreakable....unless another position is invented.

  #2  

 

Consecutive Home Runs (Father/Son)- On September 14, 1990 Ken Griffey Sr. and Ken Griffey Jr. hit back-to-back Home runs for the Seattle Mariners becoming the first father-son duo to accomplish this remarkable feat.  They played a total of 51 games together before Griffey Sr. in June, 1991.

How can this record even or ever be snapped?  Perhaps someday there will be a three generation trio that manages to be on the same team at once and then manage to get in the lineup consecutively and then manage to all hit homers.  Don't hold your breath until this happens.

#3  


Consecutive Grand Slams (Same Inning) - On April 23, 1999 Fernando Tatis of the St. Louis Cardinals homered twice with the bases loaded during the same inning.  Tatis not only became the first Major Leaguer to hit two grand slams in one inning, but he also set a new record of eight RBIs during a single inning.   

Breaking this record would require hitting three grand slams in a single inning.  At best a player would have to bat 4th, 13th and 22nd in the inning and be fortunate enough to have the bases loaded each time and be able to hit it out all three times.

#4  

 

Consecutive No Hitters - On June 11, 1938 Johnny Vander Meer of the Cincinnati Reds pitched a no hitter against the Boston Bees (before and after known as the Braves).   Just four days later he repeated against the Brooklyn Dodgers.  

Breaking this record would require pitching three consecutive no hitters.
