Russell, 22, became the first Cub ever to hit a grand slam in a World Series and the second youngest player to accomplish the feat.
The youngest player to a hit a grand slam was New York Yankee Mickey Mantle. Mantle was 21 when he hit a grand slam against the Brooklyn Dodgers in game 5 of the World Series on October 4, 1953.
Russell was only 11 years old the last time a grand slam was hit in World Series play. That one was by Chicago White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko during Game 2 of the Fall Classic in 2005.
Congratulations to Addison Russell! Let’s Go Cubbies!
