Did you know that Shane Spencer was the fifth player in American League history to hit three grand slams during the same month ? In September 1998, Spencer hitting a grand slam on the 18th ( box ), the 24th ( box ), and the 27th ( box ), tying the record set by Rudy York , Jim Northrup , Larry Parrish , and Mike Blowers . [ Grand Slam Records ]

Did you know that those three grand slams made Spencer only the seventh New York Yankee to hit at least three-or-more grand slams in a single season, joining Don Mattingly (6 GRSL in 1987), Tommy Henrich (4 GRSL in 1948), Lou Gehrig (3 GRSL in 1931), Joe DiMaggio (3 GRSL in 1937), Babe Ruth (3 GRSL in 1929) and Mike Stanley (3 GRSL in 1993)?

On May 29, 2000 , Randy Velarde turned an unassisted triple play , one of the single rarest baseball feats (it was the only the second time in baseball history a second baseman had an unassisted triple play ). Why mention Velarde's fielding feat on Spencer's online baseball card? Because the fielder ( Randy ) needs at least two runners on base and somebody to hit into the triple play - Shane was the batter that historic day.
