Ever see a college baseball inside-the-park grand slam? Now you have thanks to UAB’s Griffin Gum. Seriously, that’s his name.
As you can see, Gum drilled a pitch over the Marshall CF during the 8th inning of Sunday’s 5-2 win over the Herd.
There have been 224 inside-the-park grand slams in Major League Baseball history, 26 in the past 50 years, and only eight since 1990 (as of August 1, 2011). Honus Wagner has the most in MLB history with five.
In other words, Gum is in rare company.
