Ultimate Grand Slams

Every Major League Player Who Hit an Ultimate Grand Slam

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present a comprehensive chart of every player who has hit an ultimate grand slam, or a walk off super slam. Super? Ultimate? Well, if we only counted "simple" walk off grand slams the event would not be as rare as people think:

From 1950 though 2020 there were more than one-hundred eighty instances of players hitting a walk off-grand slam!

So to make it an ultimate grand slam, Baseball Almanac lists players on the home team who came to the plate and hit a grand slam when trailing by three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning thus winning the game.

Baseball Almanac Top Quote

" Roger Connor was a complete player — a deft first baseman and an agile base runner who hit 233 triples and stole 244 bases despite his size (6 feet 3 inches and 200 pounds)." - New York Times (George Vecsey, 05/13/2007, "Going Deep, Before Bonds and Aaron and Ruth ")
