With the World Baseball Classic officially underway, now is a good time to take a look at some of the best players who have competed in this tournament over the years.
On Twitter, MLB Network posed an interesting trivia question to fans who are excited for some WBC action.
The question pertained to which four players have hit three or more home runs during a single World Baseball Classic for Team USA.
MLB Network followed up the tweet with another post that featured a graphic showing each of the players who had accomplished this feat.
On the list are Hall-of-Famer Ken Griffey Jr. Adam Dunn, Kevin Youkilis, and Derrek Lee.

This is an elite list of sluggers who have made some history in WBC play.
Of course, none are still playing today, but each of them have hit at least three home runs in a single Classic.
Griffey played most of his career with the Seattle Mariners and Cincinnati Reds and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2016.
Dunn spent most of his career with the Reds and was a teammate of Griffey’s in Cincinnati.
Youkilis spent most of his career with the Boston Red Sox and won two World Series titles with the team.
Lee was a key piece in the Florida Marlins’ run to the World Series in 2003, but later joined the Chicago Cubs.
There could be some more players this spring who join the company these legends find themselves in.
