2 Grand Slams in 1st Two ABs
Heck of a start to one’s college career.

“Florida Atlantic's Caleb Pendleton hit grand slams in his first two collegiate plate appearances Saturday night, both in the same inning. Playing in his first game, the freshman connected with the bases loaded twice during a 12-run second inning against Central Florida.”

2 GS in 1st 2 ABs

I’m not a super in depth baseball guy but that should get your pitching coach fired the next day right?

I would love to know the odds of hitting 2 grand slams in your first 2 ABs in the same inning.

Post game meal at Denny’s? Good option right up there with the “Moons Over My Hammy”.

I’d love to just know the odds of stepping to the plate twice with the bases loaded in the same inning

On a Saturday, during February, while a pandemic is in progress, and being named Caleb. Let’s keep adding things to juice the odds

re: 2 Grand Slams in 1st Two ABs
According to Baseball Reference, there have been more than 3.9 million innings pitched over 145 seasons of Major League history. And in only one of those has the same player hit two slams

• Take a typical power-hitting cleanup batter, who hits 30 home runs in a full season (600 plate appearances).

• That cleanup batter gets to the plate in the first inning 62 percent of the time, and 1.7 percent of those plate appearances come with the bases loaded. Just 5 percent of those chances result in a homer.

• Even once the first slam is done, our hitter stands just a 1.5 percent chance of getting up to the plate again that inning. In this scenario, 21 percent of plate appearances would have the bases loaded, but once again, the home run occurs 5 percent of the time.

The end result: odds of 12 million to one for this particular scenario to come to fruition.
