On April 23, 1999, Fernando Tatis eteched his name into the baseball record books. In a feat likely never to be repeated again, Tatis hit two grand slams in the third inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers off Chan Ho Park. Ben Godar wrote about it last summer, describing it as "Being struck by lightning while winning the lottery".
