    The odds of hitting a HR in any given PA in CSFBL is around 3% (range of about 0.5-9%). Without knowing the SL of each of the players in question or the ratings of the pitchers... assuming everybody league average...

    The odds of 5 HR in a row is 0.0000024%.

    Thats crazy.

    Yes, the odds of something being literally 1 in a million would still be more than 40 times more likely than this outcome!

    Great sequence. Too bad it didn't help the team win.
