Lou Gehrig Did This for the First Time on This Day in 1925

On this day in 1925 Lou Gehrig hit his first grand slam homer.  He hit 23 in his career to easily be the MLB leader for years.   No one got to 20 until Manny Ramirez, who ended with 21.

Alex Rodriguez passed Gehrig recently, recording his 24th.

Eddie Murray had 19 and Willie McCovey had 18.  All of these guys were big home run hitters.  Surprisingly to many, Robin Ventura is tied with McCovey with 18 grand slams.
