Biographical Information[edit]

Keith McDonald tied Bob Nieman's record by homering in his first two major league at bats on July 4 and July 6, 2000. He had three major league hits, all of which were homers -- he is the only player in history to accomplish that feat.

Keith retired with a major league line of .333/455/1.333, getting three home runs in nine at-bats, and also receiving two walks.

He had 13 seasons in the minors, primarily as a catcher, appearing in nearly 1,000 games. He hit over .300 in both 1998 and 1999.

Although Keith was born in Japan, he did not play pro ball in Japan.
