Dodgers: Will Smith Setting More Records with the Home Run Ball

As Will Smith settles in as the Dodgers new starting catcher, he remains unphased in the big moments. None of these Dodgers rookies do, but that’s another article all on its own. With Smith has come the home run bat early in his big league career, and with that bat, records follow.

With his 3-run go-ahead home run in the 9th inning of Wednesday afternoon’s contest against the Colorado Rockies, the Fresh Prince of LAD set a record. He became the first player in baseball’s modern era to have 3 of his first 5 home runs be go-ahead shots in the 9th inning.

Think of how crazy that is. More than 100 years of baseball and a rookie record like that has never been touched.

Moreover, if you’re looking for the breakdown of the 3 home runs in question, just sit back and unwind, we got you covered:

In just 13 career games, the Dodgers rookie has already become a fan favorite, but more importantly, someone the team can rely on. During that time he’s posted a .333/.386/.821 slash line with those 5 homers and 15 RBI.

Welcome to Will Smith’s Summertime madness.
