Freshman wide receiver Caleb Pendleton hit the Grand Slam in his first two college at-bats in the same sleeve for host Florida Atlantic University over the weekend. (See the video below.)

Only one major player, Fernando Tatis Sr. for the St. Louis Cardinals in 1999, hit two Grand Slam tournaments in the same inning, according to MLB.com.

The Pendleton explosions occurred about 15 minutes apart as FAU struck around Saturday in a 12-point second inning to ultimately beat the University of Central Florida, 20-15, the school.

“Nothing I could ever dream of,” Pendleton said, per ESPN.

Head Coach John McCormack was stunned. “I don’t know what to say,” he said.

Pendleton’s accomplishment is also rare among the Division I college ranks. He has only become the eighth player to hit two Grand Slam tournaments in the same inning, according to NCAA.com. College baseball began keeping official records in 1957.

Despite his hot bat, Pendleton did not play in Sunday’s series final – a 15-6 loss to UCF.
