Are these statistics kept? I can't seem to find them anywhere, but my knowledge of baseball stat searching is limited.

If they are kept, could someone point me in the direction to find out how many the Sox hit in 2009?

Thanks!:smile:

The White Sox hit 7 Grand Slams in 2009.

4/25 vs. TOR - Alexei Ramirez off of Shawn Camp
5/2 @ TEX - A.J. Pierzynski off of Luis Mendoza
5/20 vs. MIN - Jermaine Dye off of Francisco Liriano
7/7 vs. CLE - Paul Konerko off of Chris Perez
7/17 vs. BAL - Jim Thome off of Danys Baez
7/23 vs. TB - Josh Fields off of Scott Kazmir (Buehrle perfecto)
9/19 vs. KC - Carlos Quentin off of Yasuhiko Yabuta

They had 12 in 2008 (4 by Alexei), 5 in 2007, 11 in 2006, and just 2 in 2005 (not counting the postseason of course).

B-R's Play Index will fill you in on all that stuff. It is a premium service ($3/month is the cheapest they offer), but my god it is amazing.

Ah, I remember all of these. Could even tell you where I was for the ones that I didn't see live on TV/radio. I know I was out to dinner with my parents after my a cappella group had a concert for Alexei's. Dad and I had gone out to run some errands for JD's against the Twins, I was working at JJ's, getting updates from my delivery driver Sox fan friend for Buehrle's perfect game and Fields' slam (I got to hear the eighth in my car driving home and got home to watch the ninth), and was at an ISU football game when Quentin hit his.

Sheesh, I never really thought about it... Didn't realize teams hit so few grand slams. I think I've seen a completely disproportionate number in person. I get to usually 1 game per year, when I lived in Chicago I still only got to maybe 3-5.

I've seen a ton of Sox grand slams over the years.

What I find interesting about this list is that seven different guys hit the seven GSs.

Thanks everyone...for some reason I was having a really hard time finding this info.

So how about all time? How do the Sox match up against other teams throughout history?

It would take me way too long to compile all-time lists, lol. There may be an easy way to it, but if so I don't know it. :tongue:

And yes, the two 2005 grannies were hit by Dye and AJ, both in the bottom of the first inning:

5/16 vs. TEX - A.J. Pierzynski off of Chan Ho Park
7/4 vs. TB - Jermaine Dye off of Hideo Nomo

I was there, it was the only Sox game I went to last year.

When I first saw the original poster's name, I thought I'd written this post for a second and got confused. :redneck Our usernames are very similar.

Alexei set a new rookie record in 2008 with 4 grand slams. :smile:

I was at the 7/17 game when Thome went deep. That thing was as SHOT! Similar to his HR in Game 163 in 2008.

I've probably seen a few Grand Slam in my day which I can't recall at the moment, but I will always remember seeing Lance Johnson's only career grand slam. You can put it on the board, yes.

I was at that game, I was like, five, so the fireworks scared the beejesus out of me and I spent the whole game covering my ears until my dad said "Pat, this guy hardly ever hits homeruns..." So I uncovered my ears and then, he hit one!

Haha, for about a year after you started posting here I had that same sensation every time I looked at your user name. :cool:
