"The hardest thing to do in baseball is to hit a round baseball with a round bat, squarely." - Ted Williams
Hitting a baseball may be the hardest task in sports. Consider the fact that a .300 hitter fails in 70% of his at-bats and yet is rightly viewed as a great success. Now think of the odds for a player to collect six hits in a single nine-inning game. It's a rare feat -- much less common than even the more celebrated no-hitter. In the combined history of the National League (founded in 1876) and the American League (founded in 1901), there have been 272 no-hitters. During that same time span there have only been 96 six-hit games.
Three of those six-hit games have been authored by members of the Kansas City Royals. Since the Royals founding in 1969, no other franchise in either league has more than two.
