baseball almanac fast facts

Joaquin Andujar had a 13-year big league career, faced more than 9,000 hitters, and never allowed a grand slam to an opposing batter. Even more impressive is that Andujar hit one grand slam as a Major League player: On May 15, 1984 , while pitching (hitting) for the St. Louis Cardinals , Andujar stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning and hit a grand slam off relief pitcher Jeff Dedmon of the Atlanta Braves . Andujar pitched a complete game victory that day, and it was the last home run of his career.

The first home run Joaquin Andujar hit, on August 14, 1979 , was in the bottom of the second inning, in the Astrodome, off Bill Lee . It was an inside the park home run, two-runs scored, the Astros won 2-1 (all runs came courtesy of the homer), and Andujar pitched a complete game victory that day as well.

Joaquin Andujar, Inside the Park Home Run
Joaquin Andujar (Inside the Park Homer / Box Score ) | The Paris News | August 15, 1979 | Page 2A
Did you know that Joaquin Andujar was the last pitcher from the St. Louis Cardinals to put together a back-to-back pair of a twenty-win seasons ? In 1984 , Andujar went 20-14, and in 1985 , that "One Tough Dominican" went 21-12. Before Andujar, it was hall of famer Bob Gibson who won twenty (or more) in three consecutive seasons (1968-1970) as well as two consecutive seasons (1965-1966).

Did you know that when the "One Tough Dominican" won a Gold Glove Award in 1984, he was the first Dominican Republic -born pitcher to receive the prestigious fielding honor?

What do Gerry Staley (1947-1961) and Joaquin Andujar have in common? They are the only two St. Louis Cardinals ' pitchers to lead the National League in hit batsmen in back-to-back seasons. Gerry Staley led the senior circuit in 1952 , and 1953 , Andujar matched him in 1984 , and 1985 .
