Home run - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2183 words)
Home runs are among the most popular aspects of baseball, and the biggest (and best-paid) stars are often the players who hit the most of them.
These home runs are generally considered to be special because of their rarity, but also because of the kind of excitement, specific to the game situation, that they can create.
A grand slam home run occurs when the bases are "loaded" (that is, there are base runners standing at first, second, and third base) and the batter hits a home run.
