The most unbreakable records in MLB history: Two grand slams in one inning

Hitting a home run is special. The sound of the ball cracking off the bat as the crowd rises to its feet to watch it leave the park. It’s one of the best feelings for a hitter and one of the most embarrassing for a pitcher.

But while hitting one is already special, hitting a grand slam is the ultimate accomplishment for a hitter. Their team has done everything right. Each of their teammates occupies the first, second, and third base, and their simply waiting on you to send one ball out of the park. Although it’s rare, grand slams happen during the course of a season. However, it’s virtually impossible for a player to hit two of them…in the same inning.

Yet, that’s exactly what Fernando Tatis was able to accomplish in 1999 as a member of the Atlanta Braves against the Los Angles Dodgers.

After hitting a grand slam in the third inning, the Braves, and more importantly, Tatis, wasn’t done just yet. With his ball club continuing to light up the scoreboard, they once again loaded the bases in the same inning when Tatis stepped up to the plate.

Just as he did just a few minutes earlier, Tatis knocked the ball out of the park, giving him his second grand slam in one inning. Since then, no one has come close to repeating that feat.
