this day is baseball

August 16, 1890

Bill Phillips becomes the first pitcher to allow two grand slams in the same inning, when Tom Burns and Malachi Kittridge both take the Alleghenys’ right-hander deep in the same frame of an 18-5 loss to the Chicago Colts. In 1999, Chan Ho Park will match the dubious feat, but will have the distinction of giving up both bases-full homers to the same batter, Fernando Tatis of the Cardinals.

concept- you hold my hand and listen to modern baseball with me. we order pizza. you kiss me and just for a little while, everything feels okay.
