On July 25, 1997 — Jesse Ibarra of the Jacksonville Suns hits grand slams from both sides of the plate in a 12 – 9 win over the Memphis Chicks. It is later concluded to be the first Organized Baseball game in which such a feat has occurred. The balls are flying out that day as Memphis’s Shane Monahan sets the Southern League record with his fourth grand slam of the season.
