    Exclamation Inside The Park Grand Slams

    Hello Baseball Fever,

    Here is one that you won't find many places! A comprehensive list of every Major League player who hit an inside-the-park home run while the bases were loaded.

    Without further delay I present the members of the Inside-the-Park Grand Slam Club :

    And Honus Wagner 5 times over the period 1898 - 1915. He must have retained his speed over many years.

    Thank you for this info!

    Wow, I didn't even notice that about Wagner. Not bad for a guy who in 1915 was already 41! Plus he stole 22 bases that season and had 17 triples!!! I also have to add all this was 100% steroid free as well.

    Webbie:

    This is my first post here. Enjoyed the list of ITPGS's. There are a number of similar lists that I've tried to find in my web-surfing with no success. Outside of SABR, can you or anyone else point me in the right direction to find any of the following.

    1) Catalogue of all Major League triple plays.

    2) All time list of arbitration winners and losers.

    3) List of all former replacement players who subsequently played in the majors.

    Believe me, I've tried to track the above down, so I'm not being lazy and asking others to do the work for me. Cheap, maybe, since I don't want to join SABR.


    Regards,

    wilbur

    Hi Wilbur! I have been pointed in the direction of baseball-almanac.com which is a wonderful source of all baseball stats and trivia.

    I remember when Junior Felix did it... it was the "Miracle Mart Hit-and Win inning" on the radio broadcast, where names are drawn and the contestant wins X amount of money if the Jays player hits a single, Y for a double, etc., and $10,000 for a grand slam. The woman who won must have had a heart attack if she was listening!

    Jimmy Sheckard BRO did it twice in consecutive games which is great. Also note that in the first game he did it, his fellow teammate Joe Kelly also had one, so both players did it during the same game on 09/23/1901.

    Looking at the list, the big name players are absent somewhat. I wonder how many of those players are in the Hall of Fame?

    ISTPGS on 6/26/76

    I saw this feat by Bombo Rivera of the Expos against my beloved Pirates at Jarry Park.

    I was in Pennsylvania visiting relatives and we watched the game on KDKA out of Pittsburgh.

    IIRC, Rivera hit the omnipitent sinking line drive to center field where Bucs CF Al Oliver tried for the catch. He missed! (DUH!) And, playing in Jarry Park with it's monsterous outfield, it certainly didn't help Pittsburgh's cause in fielding the ball!

    Pittsburgh did eventually go on the win this game by a 7-6 score. For a wrap-up of the game....

    Pittsburgh 7 Expos 6 June 26th, 1976

    An inside-the-park grand slam is to me the most exciting play in baseball. I remember as a little kid Mel Stottlemyre doing it. I'd love to ask him if that was his most memorable plate appearance in the majors.

  16. #16
    Wes Westrum, wow. I can almost see the opposing centerfielder coming in for a shoestring catch and the ball going by him all the way to those deep crevices of the Polo Grounds.

    I scanned through the list quickly, so forgive me if I missed anyone. Tony Gwynn is on there due to the fact he is a future HOFer.

    Finally, one list with no "Ruth".

    I'm still in shock that off all people on the list, that Dan Wilson
    has got one...I remember watching that game on tv.....I thought he was going to pass out rounding 3rd base....

    I was at that game. Kark hit a gapper to left center. The center fielder came over to cut it off. The ball hit the base of the wall and caromed off at a weird angle into straightaway right center. By the time they recovered the ball Kark had rumbled around the bases. His slide into home just beat the relay. I use the word slide advisedly. If my memory is correct he more or less slid/collapsed onto home plate and lay there for 10 seconds or so. It was really an exciting play.

    Great list. Tom Brunansky was not exactly a speed burner either although it was his first full year. The question about error follies reminds me of the time in 2001, when Christian Guzman of the Twins ran all the way around the bases for a "little league HR" ON A BUNT!!!!!

    terry

    This is a great list, but I would imagine that Terry Pendleton must have spent 10 days after the feat icing down his hammstrings.

    Mel Stottlemeyer??? Wow.
    Great list. More impressive than Robin Ventura, which I wouldn't have believed if I didn't see it.
