From Baseball-Reference Stat of the Day, the 17 times in baseball history a player has entered the game as a pinch runner and hit a grand slam. Three of these were Orioles: David Segui, John Shelby, and Chris Hoiles. That’s right, Chris Hoiles pinch ran! Chris Hoiles was 5 for 12 lifetime as a base stealer and had 2 career triples. Who could he possibly have pinch run for? Go ahead, think about the 1991 Orioles and try to guess. Then go to the scoresheet. Yep — Sam Horn.
Horn, by the way, played 389 games and never stole a base. He had one triple, in 1992. I’d have liked to see that. I wonder if he ever pinch ran? Calvin Pickering came up too late.
