Freshman college baseball player hits 2 grand slams in first 2 at-bats of his career
Former Major League Baseball player Fernando Tatis made history in 1999 by hitting 2 grand slams in the same inning. He was the first MLB player to accomplish that feat.
FAU freshman catcher Caleb Pendleton nearly duplicated Tatis’ night on Saturday; however, it’s even better.
Pendleton, from Jensen Beach, Florida, hit 2 grand slams in the same inning in his first 2 at-bats of his college career against UCF. It doesn’t get any better than that!
Pendleton was a prized high school recruit, and his FAU career certainly got off to a hot start. On the other hand, the season couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start for the Knights.
Below is Pendleton’s second bomb of the night:
-Two collegiate at-bats
-Two Grand Slams
-In the SAME inning
