Slamming into history

Baseball's biggest hit had its biggest night.

For the first time in 129 years of major-league baseball, five grand slams were hit in one day.

Fernando Tatis of the Cardinals and Jose Vidro of the Expos got it started Monday night. Then Mike Lowell of the Marlins connected, Bernie Williams of the Yankees followed and Jay Buhner of the Mariners set the record.

It took approximately 20,000 days of major-league games to accomplish the feat.

Four grand slams were hit in a day many times since 1871, the last time July 28, 1998, when Sammy Sosa, Gabe Alvarez, Darrin Jackson and Ray Lankford connected.
