Bowman

1954: Stan Musial of the St. Louis Cardinals sets a new major-league record for most home runs in a day when he hits five in a double-header against the New York Giants. He hit three homers in the first game, a 10-6 win for the Cardinals, and two more in the second, a 9-7 loss. The mark was tied by San Diego Padres first baseman Nate Colbert during a double-header on Aug. 1, 1972.
