"Grand Slam" is a bridge term for winning all of the tricks in a hand. It come into sport first through Golf to honour the achievement of Bobby Jones in winning all of the then four golf majors in one season i.e The Open and Amateur championships and their US equivalents. It was then adopted by other sports including Tennis and it would seem Baseball for similar achievements. See bobbyjones.com ps I am from Scotland and know next to nothing about baseball but have just seen the Red Sox score a grand slam on the TV. So I did a Google search to find out what it means in baseball and found your question.
