The 6 Best MLB Moments From Sunday

100 for Acuña! What a time to be alive...

Take A Bow, Ronald!


It was a historic night for one of the game’s most exciting young hitters, Ronald Acuña Jr. – he smashed the 100th home run of his career to win the game for his team.


The blast to deep left-center field had a beautiful sound off the bat.


The Venezuelan sensation is the fifth player in MLB history to have over 100 home runs and more than 75 stolen bases through any player’s age-23 season. He is also the quickest to that mark, taking just 378 games. Alex Rodriguez is the next closest back at 470 games. And he is just getting started.


Pablo Sandoval sensed a moment of history!


Nobody was more thrilled than the man himself, but was it about the home run or the potential of a hug from the Panda?


Happy Father’s Day


The day is one of the more touching moments in the Major League Baseball calendar, and this year’s Father’s Day in baseball did not disappoint. There were lovely father and son moments off the field…


…and on it too.


And the montage of moments from the past really pulled at the heartstrings.


We were also on the lookout for swag, and Aaron Judge duly delivered with these custom cleats.


And if you were looking for history, Shed Long Jr. of the Seattle Mariners made sure the day didn’t go by without a great fact like this.


Here is that bomb!


Triple Triple


Remarkably, for the third time this season, the New York Yankees pulled off a triple play! With nobody out, and runners on first and second, A’s catcher Sean Murphy grounded a ball to third base and the rest was history. Aroldis Chapman, for the second night in a row, luckily got out of a jam, and the play ended the game handing the Yankees a narrow 2-1 win.

Bat Fly Out


Back in the day, New York Mets manager Luis Rojas was a catcher by trade. Yesterday, he showed off some of his hand speed skills after his first baseman Pete Alonso let fly (of his bat!) out of the batter’s box. Nice snag, indeed skipper!


Wander Watch!


There was some significant news out of Durham, yesterday.



The consensus No.1 top prospect in all of baseball, Wander Franco is just 20 years old, he is currently slashing .323/.376/.601 in Triple-A with seven HR, 35 RBI, and five SB. Oh, and he can also play a bit of defense.






This Sunday’s daily dose of dingers will brighten up your day. Sound on loud!
