Random card. Tony Cloninger.

Look at young Tony. It's like he knew that one day he'd hit 2 grand slams in one game and set the all time record for a pitcher with 9 RBI in a single game. He's still the only pitcher to hit 2 slams in a game.

According to the card back from a different card, he also once pitched a one hitter with a broken toe. According to the cartoon, he also did it with an extremely large and out of shape baseball.

*Of the 13 players who have hit 2 grand slams in the same game, only one did so in his home park (Nomar Garciaparra May 10, 1999)*
