Corey Seager hit the 2nd longest home run in history

The Texas Rangers got off to an aggressive start this Monday, September 4th, in the first game of the series against the Houston Astros at “Globe Life Field” and shortstop Corey Seager was the star.

Seager opened the date with a long home run to right field to open the scoreboard in what was expected to be a showdown in Texas City.

After a 464-foot homer from the Arizona Diamondbacks on September 26, 2021, a 453-foot connection to right field in the first inning by teammate Marcus Siemian.

As if that was not enough, at the end of the fifth innings he returned with the score tied at three points a side, the ball again disappearing from the stadium, giving his team a 4×3 advantage.

That entire turn slash was achieved by the center of the field in the same number of balls and the same number of strikes. As before, he hit it in front of starter JP France, and it was his 28th home run of the season in 84 games.

Corey Seager made MLB history

Likewise, Corey Seager hit 61 home runs since his debut with the Rangers last season, tying him for the lead among all major league shortstops in that span.

Similarly, he hit his fourth home run in the last five games of the season. The last time he lost a pair of balls in an MLB game was on August 15 during his team’s 7×3 win over the Los Angeles Angels.
