What a day for the system
Saturday was an awesome day for all of Red Sox nation with Daniel Nava blasting the first pitch he ever saw in the big leagues for a grand slam. He became the fourth player in MLB history to hit a grand slam in his first at-bat, and the second to do it on the first pitch. Former Akron Aero Kevin Kouzmanoff did it in 2006.

I wanted to thank Jon Rish from the Boston Red Sox Radio Network for sending me some great audio highlights. During the Red Sox pre-game show, Joe Castiglione told Daniel Nava at the end of the interview to hit first pitch out. Below are three audio files that are a must listen.
