One of the best things about baseball is how well it keeps track of its records. Players are always accomplishing rare and strange feats, and thanks to our obsession with stats, we're able to point it out almost immediately when this happens. Take Kendrys Morales homering from both sides of the plate in a single inning -- it's only the third time that has happened in history; talk about something you don't see every day -- you might go a whole half-century without witnessing someone pull off what Morales did Monday night. It's even more interesting that he did it against the Rangers, whose Josh Hamilton had his own rare home run feat earlier in the season. Did Morales' switch-hitting prowess trump Hamilton's raw power?
