Slam Diego Padres: Diapers for Grand Slams
The San Diego Padres hitting a grand slam has turned the baseball world upside down and it’s leading to some pretty wild stuff happening.
For the first time in the history of this wonderful game, a team has hit a grand slam in four consecutive games. That’s what the San Diego Padres accomplished in a four-game sweep over the Texas Rangers.
But it’s what has happened off the field that has a lot of people talking this morning.
I’m not sure which came first, but we had two instances of someone saying that if the Padres hit a grand slam on Thursday they’d do something in a diaper.
Why a diaper, I have no clue.
Danny Vietti of CBS Sports MLB tweeted out on Thursday that if the Padres hit another grand slam he would run around the state capitol building in Sacramento in a diaper with a Fernando Tatis Jr. sign.
And then Steven Woods from the Ben and Woods show on 97.3 The Fan said he’d do the show on Friday in a diaper if the Padres hit a grand slam in a fourth straight game.
Welp, fast-forward to the game Thursday night and Eric Hosmer did the impossible hitting a grand slam.
The next part is mature audiences only.
Both guys lived up to their word and did what they promised.
Hopefully next time they promise to do something crazy it involves more clothing.
Danny even decided to turn this into a charitable even raising money for Rady Children’s Hosptial in San Diego by selling “Dingers for Homers” T-shirts.

This week has been incredible for the Padres and it’s nice to see this team getting the recognition it deserves.
Twitter has been in a frenzy the past few days and that was only heightened with diapers for home runs.
This is fun, the Padres are fun, baseball is fun. Let’s all just sit back and enjoy this wonderful ride together.
