Mike Hessman, minor league home run king

Mike Hessman, who appeared in 32 games with the 2010 New York Mets, hit a grand slam last night for his 433rd career home run in affiliated minor league baseball. That broke an 80-year-old record held by Buzz Arlett.

Hessman, who is now 37, hopes to get into coaching after he retires at the end of this season.
