Notable Negro League Games: Multi-HR Games

To the best of our knowledge, only one Negro League player hit four home runs in a game: Josh Gibson, in an inter-league matchup against the Memphis Red Sox in Zanesville, Ohio, in 1938. No box score has been found for that game but Retrosheet has compiled a game account based on what we do know about that game. In addition, Retrosheet has also compiled game accounts for several other games which saw significant home runs performances by either players or teams.
