How does a rookie in Major League Baseball make a ruckus? Hitting four home runs in his first three games, that’s how!
Trevor Story is on fire, and he’s the talk of the league right now. If the season ended today — it doesn’t — not only would he be the NL Rookie of the Year, but he’d be the MVP, too.
First, Story became the first player in MLB history to hit two home runs in his Major League debut, which also came on Opening Day. Then he hit another in his next game, becoming only the second player in over a century to hit three home runs in his first two games.
Today, he did it again. Four home runs in his first three games. No one has ever done that before.
Predictably, and deservingly, the internet exploded with Trevor Story reactions. Here’s a collection of some of the best:
FOUR home runs in his first three career @MLB games.

I mean I guess Trevor Story COULD get some hits that aren't homers, but why?

As I wrote the Cano note, Trevor Story homered in a third straight team game of a season. Amazing.
