Passing Lou Gehrig on the All-Time Grand Slam List

(September 20, 2013)

After going 1-for-19 in his previous six games for the Yankees, Rodriguez stepped into the batter’s box to find himself in a bases loaded situation with the game tied at one run a piece against the San Francisco Giants in the bottom of the seventh inning.

On a 2-1 count against George Kontos, Rodriguez hit his 24th career grand slam to right-center field to tally on the Yankee’s final four runs of the ballgame in a 5-1 victory over the Giants. The big fly propelled Rodriguez to stand alone at the top of the all-time grand slam list, passing Yankee legend Lou Gehrig.

Rodriguez added the final grand slam of his career on August 18, 2015.

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
