This day in baseball

Lou Gehrig hit his first grand slam home run on 23 July 1925.  It would prove to be the difference in the game as the Yankees defeated the Senators 11-7.  Over the course of his seventeen-year career with New York, Gehrig would hit a record-setting 23 grand slams, a mark thus far matched only by Alex Rodriguez.

    i went scrolling down the career and active list of most grand slams and there’s no one in sight making a move up the ladder. maybe pujols with 12 at 33 years old could climb a bit or brian mccann with 10 at 29 years old or Cano with 8 at 30 years old. the biggest shocker is betancourt with 5.
