rare baseball feats
With Miguel Cabrera winning this year's Triple Crown for the first time in 45 years, it got me thinking about other rare feats in baseball.
How many of the following happened during this past regular season:
Inside the Park HRs
Hitting for the cycle in a game
15+ strike-out games
If anyone knows where to find those statistics I would be very interested in knowing what they are.***Always looking for a trade!*** Willing to trade almost anything in my PC for Frank Thomas, or will trade F.T. Dupes for my needs also

You can always try baseballreference.com. It's a fantastic site if you're a stat freak like myself. :D

Aaron Hill hit 2 cycles this year-he was close to hitting 3 as well

I'd imagine many of those would be listed here.

As for games with 15 or more strikeouts, you can find that on baseball-reference.com. It found 231 such games, but in order to see the full list, you have to be a subscriber, and alas, I am not.
Go to play index (upper left hand corner of site), then game: pitching. Leave all to default except choose stat. Select SO, then specify greater than or equal to and 15.
