Kevin Kouzmanoff (born July 25, 1981, in Newport Beach, California) is an American professional baseball third baseman for the Colorado Rockies of Major League Baseball.
Kouzmanoff had trouble with various sports in high school. He got special help for batting practice, just to learn how to swing a bat for three years, implementing a swing. He dedicated all his time and effort to make it to college baseball and get drafted. Kouzmanoff is the third player of only four players in history to hit a grand slam in his first major league at-bat, after Bill Duggleby in 1898 and Jeremy Hermida in 2005, and followed by Daniel Nava in 2010. Both Kouzmanoff and Nava hit their slam on the first pitch they saw.
Kouzmanoff is of Macedonian descent.
