It's official: 2019 is the year of the home run.
Jonathan Villar of the Baltimore Orioles reached the 22nd home run on Wednesday night and the 6,106. The season and set the record in the major league. The earlier mark of 6,105 was set in 2017.
Here's a look at the record night and a deeper look at the numbers behind the record season.
Countdown to the New MLB Homerun Record
With 14 games on Wednesday (Yankees-Tigers was rainy) and an average of 2.8 home runs per game this season, it was clear that the record would fall. This meant that the biggest question of the night was which player was lucky enough to reach the record explosion.
Most homeruns in a single season
Perhaps it suits that the team that has allowed the most home runs in a season in MLB history reaches the record home run. Jonathan Villar of the Orioles unloaded Caleb Ferguson with a fastball of 150 km / h and beat the 2017 season record in Homerun No. 6,106. I do not know if Villar knew he broke the record, but let us know say he enjoyed his trot in the bases.
Adalberto Mondesi and Marcus Semien have joined the homerun joke, and in this way the homerun record is bound. Who will reach the record explosion?
The Marlins have not had many home runs this season compared to most other teams. But Garrett Cooper scored the second goal of the night as he and Isan Diaz hit two different Milwaukee pitchers. Anyone can beat in Little League! In Major League Baseball 2019, everyone becomes a homer!
Springer Dinger! George Springer has the 6,102. HR reached the season and we are now three away from tying the record.
Do not tell me you're not excited about the Home Run Countdown! Eat your Tootsie Rolls! Tecoar Hernandez of the Blue Jays and Isan Diaz of the Marlins have gone into the depths and now we are five minutes away from the single-season mark. It's tense, it's wonderful, and my God, there are many homeruns.
A few homers of American League stars even dressed us Francisco Lindor and Jorge Polanco approached the MLB record when they met in a few moments. We are now seven homers away from a new MLB brand.
We are now in the final 10 of the countdown and Ryan Zimmerman goes into the yard the Nationals, a three-shot by Martin Perez, who is the Nats in the third Inning against the twins gives a 5-0 lead. We are nine away. Hey, this could be a possible preview of the World Series!
Already in 1975, it was determined that the one millionth run in MLB history would be achieved in May. MLB caused a sensation on every park with a countdown scoreboard and the one who scored the millionth run received a Seiko watch … and a million Tootsie throws. (It was an easier time.) Two players were thrown home in one go. In Cincinnati, the Reds Dave Concepcion hit a home run and sprinted for the bases, and the team celebrated the millionth run. Unfortunately, the Astros had hit Bob Watson a second or two before and got the watch and Tootsie rolls. All I ask is that tonight, when the record-breaking homerun is beaten, the player will sprint around the bases and be rewarded with 6,106 Tootsie throws. David Schoenfield, ESPN Senior Writer The Year of the Home Run is a team effort
Incredible 16 teams are in the process of setting up a new home run franchise this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, a maximum of 12 new franchise records were set in one season in 2000. Five teams – the Dodgers, Twins, Yankees, Padres and Astros – have already set their franchise mark.
In the 2017 season, there were 17 different teams with at least 200 home runs, most in a single season in MLB history. There were already 18 teams that reached 200 HRs this year. We're on our way to hitting 23 teams this year for 200 homers.
Both the twins and the Yankees have crossed the previous one-season mark for a team (267 of the Yankees 2017) and are in the lead. Fourth fight until the end of 2019 with the title.
Someone will probably reach 50 homeruns.
Jonathan Villar's Homer with three runs is the 6,106. Homer of the season and breaks MLB's single-season record.
Six players have already completed at least 40 homeruns this year, highlighted by MLB leader Pete Alonso, whose 47 Homer beat him just five minutes before Aaron Judge's 2017 rookie record.
