Didn’t Torii Hunter hit off walk-off homer vs. the A’s last year in an afternoon comeback win…???

I thought that too but it wasn’t a grand slam but a 3 run homer

wasn’t [torii 3 run blast to win game] on a holiday too?

“8 – Tigers grand slams since 1938, according to the team’s media relations department”

Do you mean 9th inning grand slams? Surely the Tigers have hit more than 8 since 1938.

The subject of the post was walk off grand slams, so yes 8 Tiger walk off slams.
