On August 3, 2015 — Mike Hessman breaks the minor league baseball home run record with the 433rd round-tripper of his nearly 19-year career, a grand slam against the Lehigh Valley Ironpigs in the Mudhens’ 10-8 extra-inning International League (AAA) loss at Toledo’s Fifth Third Field. The 37 year-old first baseman, who played parts of five seasons with the Braves, Tigers, and Mets, surpasses Buzz Arlett, who established the mark in 1936 while playing for the Minneapolis Millers.
