In the history of Major League Baseball, only sixteen players have hit four home runs in a single game. Although none of them did so while playing for the Mets, a few of that elite group either played for or managed the Mets at some point in their careers: Carlos Delgado, Shawn Green, Mike Cameron, Willie Mays, and Gil Hodges.

If you lower the bar to three home runs in a single game, though, there are thirteen unique players who have achieved the feat while playing for the Mets—with one of them having done it twice. So let’s see if you can name all of the players to have done so in this quiz over at Sporcle:
