Are you in need of a baseball fix? Well, we got you covered in the form of some truly spectacular MLB history. On April 23, 1999 -- 21 years ago today -- the St. Louis Cardinals faced off against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a game to remember for the Redbirds. In one inning, Fernando Tatis Sr., father of the San Diego Padres' rising star, hit not one, but two grand slams in the third inning off Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park.

This is simply unheard of. While it's impressive that Tatis accomplished such a feat, it's equally impressive that Park even got the opportunity to surrender a second bases-loaded homer to the Cardinals third baseman. What was manager Davey Johnson thinking?

Tatis won't complain about Los Angeles' strategy, though. He is the only player in MLB history to ever hit two grand slams in the same frame, and also set the record for most RBIs recorded in a single inning with eight.

Given the heavy reliance on bullpens in today's MLB, it's exceedingly likely that no one will ever be able to reproduce what Tatis did on this day 21 years ago.
