What Angels outfielder hit the first grand slam in All Star Game history?

Seth and I were doing lunch yesterday, and we both knew the answer to this question. Once this happened, I think we were both kind of weirded out and our game of baseball trivia came to an end.

No looking it up on the internet and then posting the answer...

Not Jim Edmonds.

Did you know Tim Salmon had a .385 OBP, 299 home runs, and 128 OPS+ over his 14 year career, and was never an All Star?

Fred Lynn is correct, but he did it 1983 at Comiskey Park.

Amongst the runs scored on Lynn's grand slam were none other than former Twin, Rod Carew.
