The Howard by Definition- any time a player commits an error, strikes out, and hits a homerun within the same game.

Congratulations to Ian Desmond and Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals and Mark Reynolds and Matt Wieters of the Baltimore Orioles for "winning" the 2012 Howard.  Battle of the beltway...

Didn't someone have a double Howard?

I don't believe there was a double Hwoard this year, but it did happen in a previous season, by Manny Ramirez if I do recall. Felix Pie did a Howard while also hitting for the cycle. Quite impressive.

That Seattle ss what's his name, had three hrs and only eight errors all season but managed to have two Howards. That's impressive
