There's no way I'll be able to watch Sportscenter tonight and listen to that putrid announcer with his stupid nicknames and annoying voice. %-6

Has a single player ever hit 3 grand slams in one game? :-?

Just tried looking it up and it looks like twice there have been 3 grand slams total (by both teams) in a game, and then today was the first time with 3 grand slams by one team.

I think it was Fernando Tatis that hit two in the same inning.

Yeah it was Tatis. I think Jeff King hit 2 HR in the same inning but apparently not grand slams. I'm gonna have to look that up...

EDIT: OK so both of King's HR were solo shots. I remember hearing it happen when I was away on vacation. According to Baseball Reference it was August 8th, 1995.

I own all 3 guys, though Martin was on my bench. :-D

after chan ho park gave up the first one, the manager got ejected few plays later.
