MLB: Joey Votto hits home run for Reds and achieves this Barry Bonds record

Joey votto has had outstanding performances in the 2021 Season of MLB with Cincinnati Reds. On the afternoon of this Monday, September 27, they faced the Pittsburgh Pirates in one of the last days of the campaign and Votto hit a home run that made him join nothing more and nothing less than Barry Bonds on a record of this department.

According to data shared by @MLBStats, Joey Votto became the oldest player to hit 35 or more connected home runs in the same National League season since Barry Bonds did it in 2004.

Votto is setting the Bonds record at 37 years of age and also shares this feat with Moises Alou and Steve Finley, players who set that mark the same year as the former San Francisco Giants.

Barry Bonds hit 45 homers in the 2004 Major League Baseball Season when he was 39 years old and it was in the same season that he won his seventh and final Most Valuable Player MVP award.

Joey Votto has seen action in 125 games in the 2021 MLB Season with the Cincinnati Reds, during which time he has posted a .270 batting average with 35 home runs connected and 96 RBIs.

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 networks, 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.
