Ricky Horton's embarrassing grand slam moment

Ricky Horton tells how he gave up a grand slam to a pitcher -- or someone in an Astros uniform, anyway

What's worse than giving up a grand slam home run? Giving up a grand salami to the pitcher.

Even worse? Thinking you did, but you didn't. And yet you did (give up the dinger, that is).

Confusing? Let Ricky Horton explain. It happened to the FOX Sports Midwest analyst back in the day when he pitched for the Cardinals, and it was so embarrassing, it took him years to admit to manager Whitey Herzog what really happened. It takes him only a minute or so to tell Pat Parris in the FOX Sports Midwest "Cardinals Live" postgame show.
