Seager Brothers, Kyle & Corey, Make MLB HR History [VIDEO]
When you attend a baseball game, you never know what you might witness.
Unfortunately, nobody can sit in the stands with a hot dog and a beer these days and take in a game. That doesn't diminish the fact the pro ballplayers aren't entirely capable of doing something on a given day that nobody has ever, or hardly, seen. That happened Monday (Aug. 17) evening.
Kyle Seager jacked a home run less than a half inning after his younger brother, Corey, did the same making them just the 8th set of brothers in the history of Major League Baseball to accomplish that feat and the first set of siblings to go yard in the same game for opposing teams since 2001. The Dodgers eventually won the game 11-9.
Yuri and Lourdes Gurriel are the only brothers that have hit two home runs apiece in the same game.
Here is Kyle's record tying bomb in the 3rd inning.
The elder Seager hit the second of three homers in the inning for the Mariners.
The Seager's parents, Jeff and Jodi, were conflicted yet ecstatic to see there two sons make history despite not being able to attend in person.
