Boom!

Magic Juan says, "Boom!" All 417 feet of it!

 

Washington Nationals defeat the Houston Astros 5-4

MLB.com

Game 1

World Series

Houston, Texas.

 

***************

▶ In the first game of the 2019 World Series, 20-year-old Juan Soto became the fourth-youngest player in MLB history to homer in the World Series, joining a group that includes Mickey Mantle, Miguel Cabrera, and Andruw Jones (who was the youngest at 19 years, 180 days old, in 1996).

 

▶ Here, Soto is hitting his 417-foot moonshot to left-center field off Gerrit Cole, probably the best pitcher in the MLB for 2019. For the evening, Soto had three RBI, a homer, a double, and, for good measure, a stolen base. The last time a player had three hits, a homer and a stolen base in a World Series game: 1997, a year before Soto was born.
