Atlas player goes on home run binge

Mount Carmel Junior Baseball League player Tommy Reisinger, playing for the Atlas Fire Co., recently hit five home runs over the fence in five consecutive at-bats, something believed never to have been done in league play.

On May 14, facing the Cabrini Angels, Reisinger hit three consecutive home runs on three consecutive pitches and was taken out of the game. On May 15, facing the Anthracite Fire Co., he hit two home runs in his first two plate appearances.
