It was the kind of day most baseball players only dream of. William Penn’s Todd Clark hit four home runs in one game over the weekend in a series against Ashford. Clark became the first Penn player to hit four homers in a game in a 14-2 Statesmen victory. Clark says he got a good pitch to hit in his first at bat and then his teammates were saying he wasn’t going to do it again. Clark says it was pretty crazy as he kept hitting home runs.
Clark had a three run homer, two solo blasts and he capped it off with a grand slam. He says he thought he had a shot, but needed the guy ahead of him to get on before he could hit the last one.
Clark says he’s had some multiple homer games in the past but he had never hit more than two in a game.
He says he’s still shocked and amazed at hitting four. Clark says it is a day he will never forget. The umpire gave the starting pitcher the baseball after the game to be sure he got it.
Penn is 23-10 overall and returns to action on Wednesday with a first place showdown against Grand View in the Midwest Classic Conference.
