Eastern Brown sophomore Kayla Seigla hit four home runs in her team’s 13-3 victory over Fayetteville; it is apparently an unofficial state record and all who saw her do it were quite impressed.
“It was amazing,” Eastern Brown athletic director Eric Purdy said. “It was a very surreal experience. You thought after the second one you thought, ‘Man there is no way she could hit another.’ …She hits it like no other girl I have ever seen. It was unbelievable.”
Seigla is a first baseman and she is likely to get national attention after this. She has nine home runs in the season so far, but never had more than one in a game before Thursday. Eastern Brown (12-2) plays at Huntington Ross Saturday in a game starting at 11 a.m.
“They were just saying they couldn’t believe it because they had never seen that happen before,” Seigla said. She finished the game with eight runs batted in. Shout out to Cincinnati.com for these excellent interview questions. Seigla should have a bulls-eye on her back the rest of the season and opposing pitchers are sure to walk her a bit more than she is used to. When she steps up to the plate, the opposing pitcher will know that she is the girl who hit four home runs in four at bats.
“It was probably the best moment of my life so far,” Seigla said.
Let’s see is she can somehow top it.
