This day in baseball: World Series slams

The first World Series grand slam came on October 10, 1920 when Elmer Smith of the Indians belted a bases-loaded homer against the Brooklyn Dodgers.  In the same game, Indians pitcher Jim Bagby hit the first World Series homer by a pitcher.  Cleveland won the game, 8-1.
