Sporcle Saturday: Grand slams since 2000

Tim Anderson hit the first grand slam of his career this past Sunday, a nice little opposite-field blast against the Yankees. While this may have been number one for the shortstop from Tuscaloosa, he was the 79th individual player season for the White Sox since 2000. And that’s what today’s Sporcle will be asking you: which players have hit (at least one) grand slam for the White Sox dating back to 2000? Good luck!

Quiz Parameters

  • As noted above, this only covers individual players, not every instance; if a player hit more than one grand slam in a season, they’re only listed once that year.
  • I’ve allotted 10 minutes for completion attempts.
  • For hints, I’ve provided the year and the position(s) of the player in question.

Useless information to amaze, annoy, confuse, and/or confound your friends and family:

  • No player has hit more than 4 in one season for the White Sox, though it has happened twice: once in 1997 and again in 2008.
  • Dating back to 1957, the Sox have had a player hit a grand slam at least once during a season, except for 1980.
  • The franchise’s first grand slam came off the bat of Willie Kamm on May 28, 1925, facing Earl Whitehill of the Detroit Tigers.

71/79. Missed two rather obvious ones; the rest I have no recall of the grand slam or the player and that is just as well.

We’ve had a lot of sporcles on dingers and slams. How about something in the future on everybody’s favorite topic, like best bunters over a certain period.

Singles leaders going back to 1901 would be a lot of fun.

66/79. I missed the two that I always miss (

74/79, and most of my misses were infielders.

73/79 I have distinct memories of watching all the ones between 2005-2012.
