Home Runs Hit By Royals Pitchers

All eight home runs hit by Royals pitchers.
I really didn't think I could hit that far, to tell you the truth. It just happened.--Zack Greinke

  1. I am nearly certain that Steve Busby hit a home run for the Royals at Municipal Stadium in September of 1972.

  2. Tom, thanks so much for reading and commenting. Busby is not credited with hitting a HR, but thanks to your comment I discovered a grand slam that Busby hit in September '72 that was not counted since someone had called time right before he hit it. Busby mentions it in this interview: and it is also mentioned in the game summary here:,1493701&dq=steve+busby+grand+slam&hl=en

    He still had a nice day at the plate: 3-for-4 with three RBI! They were only three hits of his career...only got 15 at-bats as a September call-up in '72 and then came the DH in '73.
