June 29, 1956
Little Rock (Pulaski County) native Randy Jackson, who played ten seasons in the 1950s, mostly for the Chicago Cubs, participated in a game that marked the only time in major league history that a baseball game ended with three consecutive home runs. Jackson was playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers against the Philadelphia Phillies, who were leading 5–2 going into the bottom of the ninth inning. Duke Snider preceded Jackson with a home run, which brought the game to 5–4. Jackson then hit a home run to tie the game, and on the next pitch, Gil Hodges hit another home run to win the game for the Dodgers.
