  • It should be noted that a 4-HR game is the rarest single game accomplishment in Baseball, having occurred less times than a perfect game. – Frank Anderson Jun 8 '17 at 20:41
  • A 4-HR game is rarer than a perfect game, but it is by no means the rarest. For example, two players have had 7 hits in a nine-inning game. – chepner Jul 27 '17 at 13:33
