Watch A College Baseball Player Do What Only 1 Major Leaguer Has Done. Ever.
Freshman catcher Caleb Pendleton hit Grand Slams in his first two college bats in the same inning for hosts Florida Atlantic University over the weekend. (See the video below.)
Only one great leaguer, Fernando Tatis Sr. for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999, has hit two Grand Slams in the same inning, according to MLB.com.
Pendleton's explosions occurred within about 15 minutes of FAU battling the University of Central Florida (20-15) in a 12-run inning on Saturday, the school found.
"Nothing I could ever dream of," Pendleton said on ESPN.
Head coach John McCormack was delighted. "I don't know what to say," he said.
Pendleton's performance is rare even in the Division I college ranks. According to NCAA.com, he was only the eighth player to score two Grand Slams in the same inning. College baseball began keeping official records in 1957.
Despite his hot bat, Pendleton didn't play in the series finals on Sunday - a 15-6 loss to UCF.
