This post is inspired by a Twitter conversation with Matt from Roar from 34 about his post regarding the day Don Buford struck out 5 times in the same game and the follow up question from @sarahcumbie:
So I decided to find out. As it turns out, Sarah had the right idea...Mark Reynolds is well into the double digits. All-time leaders in games where a player wore "The Golden Sombrero":
Reggie Jackson 23 Bo Jackson 19 Jim Thome 18 Ryan Howard 18 Sammy Sosa 17 Rob Deer 17 Jose Canseco 16 Dave Kingman 15 Andres Galarraga 15 Dick Allen 15 Reggie Sanders 14 Mark Reynolds 14 Ray Lankford 14 Bobby Bonds 14
That's way up the list for a guy who had only played three seasons. The next Orioles on the list (at least one who spent significant time in Baltimore was Frank Robinson with 6 sombreros to his credit. He's a player the likes of which we have never had in Baltimore...an all or nothing slugger.
He's going to make me bi-polar.
