August 28, 2008 – INF Cristian Guzman became the first Washington, D.C.-based big leaguer to hit for the cycle (sequence HR, 1B, 2B, 3B) in front of fans in the Nation’s Capital. Before Guzman’s achievement, six players representing the AL Nationals, Senators, expansion Senators or Nationals hit for the cycle, but all six came on the road. Guzman’s cycle was the seventh to occur in D.C. since 1900, the first in nearly 61 years since Detroit’s Vic Wertz accomplished the feat on September 14, 1947 at Griffith Stadium.
