Was Kouzmanoff's grand slam last year a walk-off for CLE? I know it came in his first MLB AB.....

Yeah I remember seeing the clips on SportsCenter of Youk's first HR and the high fives to imaginary teammates was pretty funny.

What's the rationale behind this type of treatment?

It's just a hazing thing, much like giving a player the shaving cream pie to the face when they do their first post-game interview.

Same thing happened to a Cubs player earlier in the year, I believe it was done to Soriano when he finally hit his 1st HR on May 1st.
