on ESPN when a baseball player hits a grand slam they denote it as something like GS(4)

The 4 in parenthesis usually denotes the number of X in the season, with X being some type of stats ie 2B(13), SB(48) to denote the season totals of doubles and stolen bases.

Home runs are denoted: HR(12)

The Grand Slam (GS) occurs so rarely that there are not season totals for it, rather career totals.

When ESPN shows a player has hit a Grand Slam in a game they will put GS(4)

But does this mean:

  1. That’s the total number of Grand Slams this player has hit this season?
  2. That’s the total number of Grand Slams this player has hit his career?
  3. That’s the total number of Home Runs this player has hit this season?

anyways I hope whoever thought this idea up has a really bad week! 🙁

in case you’re wondering its #3
