Yankees make history by belting three grand slam homers in one game


(courtesy of

The New York Yankees, one of baseball’s most tradition-rich franchises, set another record that most fans and members of the media thought they would have achieved in years past.

During a wet and rainy game last Thursday in the Bronx, the Yankees became the first team in MLB history to hit three grand slams in one game.

Robinson Cano, Russell Martin and Curtis Granderson all connected in a wild 22-9 pasting of the Oakland A’s.

SPORTS SPOTLIGHT VIDEO FEATURE: Hope Solo, U.S. Women’s Soccer player

Hope Amelia Solo was born July 30, 1981 of Italian descent. She is the goalkeeper for the United States women’s soccer team for the magicJack of Women’s Professional Soccer.

Solo was born in Richland, Washington. Her father Jeffrey, of Italian descent, grew up in the Bronx and was a Vietnam War veteran. It was her dad who taught Hope how to play soccer.

Eventhough her parents divorced when she was six, Hope maintained a close relationship with her father until his death in June 2007.

Solo played soccer with the Three-Rivers Soccer Club in the Tri-Cities area. At Richland High School, playing forward, Solo scored 109 goals, leading her team to three consecutive league titles from 1996-1998 and a state title her senior season. She was twice named a Parade All-American. At the University of Washington, Solo switched to the goalkeeper position and was the team’s all-time leader in shutouts, saves, and goals-against average. She was a four-time All-Pac-10 selection and a three-time NSCAA All-American.

After her college career at Washington, Solo was drafted by the now defunct WUSA team Philadelphia Charge in 2003. She also played for Kopparbergs/Goteborg FC of Goteborg, Sweden in the Swedish Premier Division in 2004 and for Olympique Lyonnais in the French First Division in 2005.

On September 16, 2008, Solo was one of the three players drafted for St. Louis Athletica in the WPS allocation of national team members, with the new league starting play in 2009. After a slow start in goal at 0-2-2, Hope rebounded to finish the season with eight shutouts.

In 2009, Solo was named the WPS Goalkeeper of the Year.

In May 2010 the St.Louis Athletica folded and Solo signed with another WPS team, Atlanta Beat, along with two St. Louis teammates.

In 2011, Hope signed to for the new magicJack franchise in Women’s Professional Soccer.

In the 2007 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Solo was the starting goalkeeper for the United States, allowing two goals in four games including consecutive shutouts of Sweden, Nigeria and England.

In the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup, Solo was named to the U.S. roster despite missing time during the qualifying games with a shoulder injury. Solo helped lead the team to wins over North Korea, Columbia, Sweden and Brazil. In the final, the United States women’s team lost 3-1 in a penalty shootout to Japan, after twice leading in an eventual 2-2 draw. Solo was awarded the Golden Glove award for best goalkeeper, the Bronze Ball award for overall performance and was also selected to the all-star team of the tournament.

The 5’9 Solo recently drove the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Pace Car in NASCAR’s Brickyard 400. She spent several minutes with the media talking soccer and auto racing.

Friday rain postpones Jeter’s bid for 3,000 hits

Derek Jeter’s quest for 3,000 career hits hit a snag with Mother Nature on Friday.

Rain and the threat of thunderstorms forced the postponement of the New York Yankees’ game against the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday in the Bronx.

The rain-out leaves the popular Yankees captain and shortstop on 2,998 hits, two shy of the 3,000 milestone which has never been reached by a Yankees player. Not even Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Yogi Berra, Joe DiMaggio or Mickey Mantle reached the milestone.

The Yankees wanted Jeter to reach the milestone on the current homestand and suggested to the Rays that the rain-out could be made up as a day-night doubleheader on Saturday, but the Rays declined. MLB rules states that both teams have to agree.

The rain-out on Friday will be made up on September 22.

He’ll be in the Akron lineup while they’re hosting New Hampshire, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If all goes well, Hafner could rejoin the Indians when they return home to play the Pittsburgh Pirates as interleague action heats up again.

In his first game with the Aeros on Tuesday night, Hafner was 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored in a 7-2 loss to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats.
