Clemens???

right or wrong, I have a solid three parter for you. It's somewhat recent, and absurd:

1) Who is the only player to hit two grand slams in one inning?
2) Who is the pitcher who gave BOTH of them up?
3) Who is the manager dumb enough to keep the same pitcher in to give up two grannys to the same guy in one inning?

Doc Gooden? First that came up to my mind and he was like 20 when he did

Fernando Tatis hit 2 GS in one inning, against Dodgers I think...not sure who was pitching

Probably some kid in the 1880's that nobody has ever heard of.

Doc Gooden sounds right......although if not him I'd be inclined to say Feller - he was in the majors by 17.

76YazwSideburns
07-12-2008, 09:39 AM
No. I think he is 4th or 5th.

I'm pretty sure that Reggie had 14 or perhaps 15 ASG appearances - lots of the guys with huge numbers were CF's. Mantle 20, Mays 20+, DiMag, 13.

I'm sticking with Reg.

Well, I am counting RF only. The answer I was looking for is Al Kaline with 16.

I'm not sure if he was the youngest, but I think Doc was 19 the year he won 24 games, so you are probably right.

Tatis is right and It seems like Odalis Perez was pitching.

Baseball Reference is great for the stats - but I remember Charlie O very well and his various carny tricks including Herb.

Only player to win MVP in both leagues Frank Robinson. In Cinn and Balt in '66. In '66 he was the second last guy to win the triple crown.

Who is that (easy)? Name me the BA/player name (no looking it up) of the triple crown winner with the lowest BA of all time for extra credit.

Bob Feller was 16 days younger (or more if you count end of seasons) then Gooden and put in a 24-9 season in 1939 at the same age minus 16 days. I believe there is a WW II guy that was younger, and probably some 1870/1880 guys too.
