During last night’s Yankee game history was made. No, I’m not talking about being the first team to hit 3 grand slams in a game. I’m talking about Jorge Posada’s first appearance at second base in his major league career.

Posada played second base in the minors in 1990 and then moved to catcher in 1991.

Last year, it was the “The Year of the Walk-Off.” This year, it’s the “Year of the Grand Slam.” The Yankees have hit nine grand slams this season, which is only one shy of the club record set in 1987. Mattingly actually hit six of those grand slam’s in ’87 (Fun Fact: Don never hit a grand slam before or after 1987). With 74 games left to play, I’m sure the team will shatter that record.
