Villa Hills Declares "Scooter Gennett Day" After Reds Star Hits 4 Home Runs in Game

He wears the number 4 on his jersey and on Tuesday night that became an historic symbol.

Cincinnati Reds player Scooter Gennett hit four home runs against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday, becoming the first Red to achieve the feat and just the 17th Major League Baseball player to do it, ever.

And now he has his own day named for him in Villa Hills, Kentucky.

Mayor Irvin T. "Butch" Callery declared Wednesday, June 7, to be Scooter Gennett Day in the city, in celebration of Gennett's performance in the Reds' 13 to 1 win over the Cardinals.

“The feat accomplished by Scooter Gennett is historic. It may never happen again," Callery said. "All of Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati should be very proud. It is a cause for celebration for all baseball fans in our area."

A proclamation was issued by the city designating the day in honor of Gennett.
