Yankees Trivia Answer

Friday, January 29, 2010

On Tuesday I asked the question: Who is the only Yankee to hit two grand slams in a game?

The correct answer is......Tony Lazzeri.
The Hall of Fame second baseman hit 2 grand slams on May 24, 1936 against the Philadelphia A's. He also had 11 RBIs that game, the most RBIs in a single game by any Yankee too.

Lou Gehrig holds the MLB record for most career grand slams (23), but he never hit more than one in a game.

Don Mattingly hit all 6 career grand slams in 1987, the single-season record, but never two in one game.

We got 6 votes this time, 3 for Lazerri. So this segment is improving and I think we will continue it next week. Maybe we can double our total votes again to 12.

Quick note, I won't be near my computer until Saturday night, and Jim's computer is broken and I'm not sure if it's fixed yet. So if there is any major news in the next 24-30 hours we may not have it up on the blog.
Oh, and here is a quick link on the work I've been doing for the Quinnipiac Chronicle:

See Ya!
