Made history! Super rookie Wander Franco set this MLB record

The rookie feeling of all MLB, Wander franco, has not ceased to amaze with his performances for Tampa Bay Rays. As if that were not enough, the Dominican wrote his name again in the history books of the Big leagues during the game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, August 25, as he imposed a new record in the circuit.

Wander Franco has performed well so far in his first year as a Major League Baseball player, a situation that has now led him to become the player 21 years of age or younger with the longest streak of games on base.

This mark was achieved during the meeting between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night, since that became his 26th game on the bases and with 20 years of age.

That night the victory went to the Tampa Bay team and the Dominican shortstop took five at-bats at bat in which he managed to hit three hits and score two runs.

Wander Franco made his debut on June 22 of this year, after months of being considered the best prospect in all of MLB. At the moment he is not disappointing because in 49 games with the Tampa Bay Rays he already has a percentage of .274.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
