Quick!  Who hit the first grand slam in Minnesota Twins history?  It wasn't Harmon Killebrew or Bob Allison.  Dan Dobbek was supposed to join those two in the middle of the Twins lineup for years to come.  Prospects don't always work out.  That grannie was one of just four home runs for Dobbek in the Twins inaugural season.  That season, in which he struggled to a .168 batting average, would be his last in the majors.
