It didn’t take long for Toronto Blue Jays rookie infielder Bo Bichette to make history, and one Thursday night he put his name in the MLB record books.
Bichette, playing in a home game against the New York Yankees on Thursday night, became the first player in the modern era (since 1900) to double in nine straight games.
More impressively, Bichette accomplished the feat in the 11th game of his career, demonstrating the incredible impact he has had since the Blue Jays called him up earlier this season.
“When I hit the homer, that was the first chills moment I’ve had in the big leagues so far” Bichette said, according to ESPN.
Bichette wasn’t done there, he is on a historic hitting streak as well as his current 11-game hit streak is the longest to start a career in franchise history.
