Remember this? (Click on the black box or this link to watch the video because MLB.com doesn’t like me today, apparently…)

It happened eight years ago tonight.

Alex Rodriguez hit a two-run home run, a three-run home run and a grand slam in one game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. As Michael Kay said in his last home run call, “What a week for Rodriguez on a Tuesday night in the Bronx.”

Rodriguez would go on to win the first of his two MVP trophies in Pinstripes that season. He won his second in 2007.
