Two Grand Slams in One Game

Many good hitters have hit two or more home runs in a game, but grand slams? On May 24, 1936, Tony Lazzeri of the New York Yankees did just that, clearing the bases twice for the first time ever in the Major Leagues. Since then, only twelve other players have achieved this feat, making this one of the most amazing and elite hitting feats in the game.

What makes this feat so wonderful, is that it is a team effort. One man may end up with all the glory (and RBIs), but without his teammates getting on, he just has two solo home runs. However, each player who achieved this feat deserves his place in history, as he has overcome the pressure not once but twice in one day to lead his team to victory.
