Lou Gehrig[edit]

I would like to know how many times Lou Gehrig came to the plate with the bases loaded We know he hit 23 grand slams, but how many opportunities did he have?—The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 01:43, 19 May 2006.

lead vs body / etymology?[edit]

Someone w/ time might want to move much of this article's lead to one or more sub-sections; leaving a pithier, more cogent lead and a visible TOC.

Also, the name--does the term "Grand Slam" come from Bridge, or what? And perhaps the article could list some of the many other nicknames for the four-run-homer, including my personal favorite, Gettysburg Address (four score...) ;-) —Turangalila talk 21:58, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

inside the park grand slam[edit]

Anybody know of a reliable list we could post of these? All I could find was here, and I know this is an incomplete list, I remember witnessing one by the Brewers inside the Big O back in 2001. Any help is appreciated! 20:51, 15 November 2007 (UTC)

Players who have hit two grand slams in a single game[edit]

This article is completely wrong in its assertion that only two players have hit two grand slams in a single game. According to that feat has been accomplished 13 separate times. That section of the article needs a major re-write. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 07:17, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Lou Gehrig Photo[edit]

I think the photo of Gehrig used in this article (in the section on career leaders) should be changed. It is of him wearing his Columbia University uniform, while the 23 grand slams relevant to the article were profession grand slams, hit as a Yankee, so shouldn't the photograph reflect that?

It's the clearest photo we currently have. See commons:Category:Lou Gehrig for other photographs of Gehrig that we can use. Mindmatrix 00:27, 6 September 2011 (UTC)


There are no sources listed for the Career Grand Slam Leaders list or the Single Season Grand Slam Leaders list. Someone needs to add citations for those numbers. Tad Lincoln (talk) 00:08, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Here's a long list (apparently current) of career grand slams.[1] And here are various records associated with the subject.[2]Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 00:27, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Josh Willingham[edit]

An IP tried to add Wingham's 2 consecutive grand slams. He got the facts wrong and I reverted it, but it did happen:[3]Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 01:52, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Present tense[edit]

Why is the present tense used in some of the descriptive notes for the playoff GS's? Seems a little goofy. (talk) 06:00, 5 October 2014 (UTC)
