I´d also check ¨grand sombrero¨(like ¨grand slam¨). Not everything´s golden...The ¨1984¨ should be ¨1987¨ in the below cite, I assume.

Dickson's got it from 1989 (Don Baylor), but Factiva and 
Newspaperarchive push it back to 1987 (Pete Rose). 
Associated Press, June 16, 1984 
"We had two guys who got the 'Golden Sombrero' tonight. You know what 
the Golden Sombrero is don't you? It's the hat trick plus one. Our No. 
1 and No. 8 hitters struck out four times each." -- Cincinnati Manager 
Pete Rose. Houston's Mike Scott struck out 14 Reds, leading Houston to 
a 4-0 victory Monday.
