During his 2000 season, Hidalgo broke out and set career marks for average (.314), home runs (44) RBIs (122), and collected an extra-base hit in ten consecutive games, an Astros ' franchise record. Trivia: Do you know who tied that team-specific record in 2017? [ Answer ]

Did you know that when Richard Hidalgo hit an Opening Day grand slam on April 4, 2000 , it was the first of his career, the only one he ever hit in the majors, and the first grand slam by an Astros ' player in an Opening Day game ?
