WATCH: Alex Rodriguez hits record 24th career grand slam

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

More A-Rod: Knobler: Like it or not, A-Rod is the all-time grand slam king

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez set a record when he was suspended 211 games for his ties to Biogenesis last month. He's appealing the ban and allowed to play in the meantime, which gave him a chance to set another record: the all-time grand slam record. A-Rod hit his 24th career grand slam on Friday to pass Lou Gehrig on the all-time list. Here's the record-setting blast:

Here's the updated all-time grand slam leaderboard, courtesy of Baseball Almanac:

  1. A-Rod -- 24
  2. Gehrig -- 23
  3. Manny Ramirez -- 21
  4. Eddie Murray -- 19
  5. Willie McCovey & Robin Ventura -- both 18
  6. Jimmie Foxx, Carlos Lee & Ted Williams -- 17 each
  7. Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth & Dave Kingman -- 16 each
  8. Ken Griffey Jr. & Richie Sexson -- 15 each
  9. Jason Giambi, Gil Hodges, Mark McGwire & Mike Piazza -- 14 each
  10. Eight tied with 13
