Oldest Players to Hit Three Homers in a Game

From Andy at Baseball-Reference.com on May 19:

Damn straight, I wrote about how long it took for a 3-HR game in the majors this year, and now they are coming in rapid-fire fashion.

Jason Giambi already has 3 homers against the Phillies tonight. He’ll have a shot at 4.

Going back to 1919, the oldest players to hit 3 homers in a game are:
