 Biographical Information
On May 26, 1929, Les Bell hit a seventh-inning pinch hit grand slam off Carl Hubbell. In the previous inning, Pat Crawford had hit a pinch hit grand slam off Socks Seibold. This was the only time in history that two pinch hit grand slams were hit in the same game. Both were needed, as although the game was tied 2-2 before Crawford's blast, it ended 15-8.
The 1926 St. Louis Cardinals featured Rogers Hornsby, Jim Bottomley, and Chick Hafey, but Les Bell had the highest slugging percentage on the team. His .518 slugging percentage was nearly 100 points higher than he would hit in any other major league season. He was sixth in the MVP voting that year.
