Today in Baseball History: Fernando Tatís hits two grand slams in one inning

Fernando Tatís spent parts of 11 seasons in the major leagues, playing for the Rangers, Cardinals, Expos, Orioles, and Mets. In nearly 3,500 plate appearances, he hit .265/.344/.442 with 113 home runs and 448 RBI. It was a fine, fine, career.

He’ll probably be remembered most for two things, though: (1) being the father of Fernando Tatís Jr., who in less than one full major league season already looks like he’ll be a massive, massive superstar; and (2) the time on April 23, 1999 he hit two grand slams in a single inning.

The feat had, needless to say, never happened before. Indeed, up to that date, only four teams had ever hit two grand slams in an inning: the 1969 Houston Astros, 1986 Baltimore Orioles, 1980 Milwaukee Brewers, and the 1962 Minnesota Twins.

But, yep, it really happened
