The one about Yadier Molina’s Grand Slams - A Hunt and Peck

An appreciation.

Casually, but not without jumps
Moving around under the intimate shale-like cliff
Waving, you went forth

It was even a sunny day
Although it would have been sufficient
If we just had an occasional wink or blink of light

among the beetling
Of clouds and rocks, gleaming,
What an incessant departure!

The face that went then,
The eyes, the manners, the ungovernable ways
Seemed to be only initial

Not definitive — there was still so much left behind
There was no question yet
Of catching it all on the way back.

— Michael Benedikt, “Catching It All On the Way Back”

According to my research Yadier Molina has now hit six grand slams. Here they all are:

April 5, 2010

September 6, 2010

May 27, 2012

September 6, 2016

August 9, 2017 (AKA The Rally Cat Game)

September 4, 2018
