Former Louisiana Ragin’ Cajun baseball player Stefan Trosclair accomplished a rare feat recently, and the way he did it even more defied the odds.

Trosclair, who plays for the Peoria Chiefs, a Class A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, hit for the cycle last Friday night, in a 13-10 win over the Beloit Snappers.

A native of Sulphur, hit for the reverse cycle, accumulating a homer, triple, double, and single, in that order, and did it after only going 1-for-3 through the first 7 innings.

After homering in the fourth inning, and entering the 8th inning going 1-for-3, led off the frame with a triple, before hitting a second time in the inning, with nobody out, and doubled, leaving him a single away from the cycle.

With one out in the 9th, Trosclair singled, become the first Peoria player to do so in nearly 7 years.

Yes, hitting for the cycle is hard to do, but how often do you see it happening by a player who has only one hit entering the 8th inning?

Trosclair, who played for UL in the 2015-2016 seasons, hit a .307 over his two seasons, to go along with 23 home runs and 92 runs batted in.

A 2016 20th-round pick by the Cardinals, Trosclair is hitting a .284 with 10 homers and 44 RBIs in 88 games, in his second professional season.
