Who has hit the most grand slam home runs since 1961 you ask? None other then Alex Rodriguez who has 23. But then again how many would have he had hit if he had not juiced…. Manny Ramirez is next with 21.

    My father took me to a game at Met and my memory is Killebrew hit a grand slam and also another homer. Thought game was against k.c. Athletics and final score of Twins winning 12 to 4? Was it a dream or can you tell me the date of this game? Thank you!

      James,

      From what I can determine the game you are referring to took place on July 18, 1962 when the Twins beat the Cleveland Indians 14-3. That is the infamous game when the Twins hit two GS home runs in the first inning. I remember that game too as my brother and I had finished helping milk the cows and we ran down to the river to go fishing, naturally we took our transistor radio with us to listen to the Twins game.
