Juan Soto puts himself in conversation with Griffey with homer

Juan Soto

Juan Soto put himself in the same conversation as Ken Griffey Jr with a home run he hit on Wednesday night.

The Washington Nationals rookie homered in the top of the fourth inning against the New York Yankees. With the homer, he became the youngest player to hit a dinger at Yankee Stadium since Ken Griffey Jr. in 1989.

The homer barely got out of the park, but credit Soto for his oppo power.

Soto’s call-up by the Nats was met with plenty of fanfare, and he has lived up to the hype. The 19-year-old entered the game batting .339 with a 1.043 OPS, which is just absurd for a player so young.
