4. Breaking the Grand Slam Record
For 75 years, fellow Yankee Lou Gehrig had the most career grand slams. That record came to an end on night the Yankees needed it the most.
New York was on the outside looking in as the playoffs drew near, and they could use any win they could get.
The Yankees were in a 1-1 tie with the San Francisco Giants when Rodriguez came to the plate with the bases loaded.
A-Rod sent one into the seats, not only fueling a 5-1 Yankee win, but it moved passed the Iron Horse to become the career leader in grand slams.
It was an unbelievable achievement and moved him past one of the greatest to ever play the game in the record books.
