Relief Pitcher Hits Grand Slam For First Time Since 1985

Stat stories: Daniel Camarena’s grand slam as statistically unlikely as you’d expect

San Diego Padres reliever Daniel Camarena hit his Grand slam on July 8th, which was a night game against the Nationals.

Earlier that same day, this feature story about The Macarena was published.


The Macarena and Grand slam both = 89 Ordinal

The game finished with a score of 8-9

Camarena was drafted by the New York Yankees, who broke a record by having ~50,000 fans dance to the Macarena in-between innings.

New York Yankees and Macarena both = 191

July 8th had Primary numerology of 56:(7) + (8) + (20) + (21) = 56

Daniel Camarena = 56, Camarena = 56, Macarena = 56

"San Diego Padres" = 506 (English Extended)

Camarena’s grand slam was no cheapie – it came off of Nationals’ starting pitcher and 8-time All-Star Max Scherzer, who has a Life Lesson number of 56:(7) + (27) + 1+9+8+4 = 56

“Fifty-six” = 118. Macarena was released on (8)+(15) + (95) = 118.

Bayside Boys Release

Los Del Rio, who wrote “Macarena”, is made up of Antonio Romero and Rafael Ruiz.

Antonio Romero and Rafael Ruiz = 137

The Yankees’ massive Macarena dance occurred on the date leaving 137 days in the year:

The Macarena first appeared on the album A mí me gusta, which was released on a date with Primary numerology of 137:(12) + (13) + (19) + (93) = 137

Max Scherzer has Primary birth numerology of 137:(7) + (27) + (19) + (84) = 137

Camarena’s full name has gematria of 137, which matches the team he plays for, the San Diego Padres.

"Daniel Ricardo Camarena" = 137 (Reverse Reduction)

San Diego Padres = 137 and San Diego = 38

The famous Bayside Boys remix of Macarena, which stayed at #1 for an astounding 14 weeks, was released on a date with Primary numerology of 137 and 38:(8) + (15) + (19) + (95) = 137, 8 + 1+5 + 1+9+9+5 = 38, and August 15th is the 227th day of the year

August 15th was the 227th day of the year, connecting us to Max Scherzer’s full name:

"Maxwell M. Scherzer" = 227 (Reverse Ordinal)


Notice Scherzer’s birthdate of July 27th, which can be written 27/7. This syncs up with the Latin/Jewish gematria of his full name, as well as the Reverse value of Daniel Camarena.

"Maxwell M. Scherzer" = 2077 (Jewish)

"Daniel Camarena" = 277 (Reverse Ordinal)

277 is the 59th Prime number

"Homer" = 59 (English Ordinal)

"Max Scherzer" = 59 (Full Reduction)

Daniel Camarena was born a span of 59 days after the anniversary of Don Robinson’s feat:

Don Robinson = 59, Donnie Robinson = 509

Max Scherzer was a span of exactly 59 weeks old on the date of Don Robinson’s grand slam:

Donnie Robinson made his Major League debut in ‘78. Camarena’s unusual accomplishment fell on July 8th, written either 7/8 or 8/7.

Maxwell Scherzer = 78, Don Allen Robinson = 87

Don Robinson made his final Major League appearance in 1992, the same year Daniel Camarena was born. This stands out because he was 1992 weeks old when the Macarena was released on August 15th, the date written 15/8.

"Don Robinson" = 158 (Reverse Ordinal)

Going Deep

I found the Reduction gematria of Relief pitcher hits a grand slam to be noteworthy.

"Relief pitcher hits a grand slam" = 154 (Single Reduction)

"Grand slam" = 154 (Reverse Ordinal)

Daniel Camarena was born 154 days after Don Robinson’s birthday:

In Full Reduction, this phrase sums to 136.

"Relief pitcher hits a grand slam" = 136 (Full Reduction)

Robinson’s feat occurred in the 136th game of the year
The 136th Prime number is 769

On the date Camarena hit his grand slam, Don Robinson turned exactly 769 months (or 64 years, 1 month) old:

641 is the 116th Prime number

"Don Allen "Donnie" Robinson" = 116 (Reverse Reduction)

116 flipped upside-down is 911
Camarena was born on November 9th, or 9/11

Max Scherzer, who was born 9911 days after Don Robinson, was 11 years, 19 days old when the Macarena was released 119 months after Robinson’s grand slam:

11/19 stands out because that’s the birthday of Tyga, who released his own version of the Macarena in November, the 11th month of ’19.
