Trevor Story Makes History, Blasts Home Runs In First Three MLB Games

If you’ve never heard of Trevor Story until now, that’s all about to change.

The Colorado Rockies were without a shortstop to start this season after trading Troy Tulowitzki at least season’s trade deadline for Jose Reyes, who’s awaiting punishment for a domestic violence case from Major League Baseball. So, in came Story, who started off his rookie season in a historic way.

The 23-year-old smacked a home run against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Coors Field on Wednesday, his third in as many days. Story is the first player in MLB history to accomplish such a feat.

The home run was actually Story’s fourth of the season, as he hit two off D-Backs starter Zack Greinke on Opening Day. The last time a player hit a home run in each of his first three games was 1900, three years before MLB was founded, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Of course, the mile-high altitude at Coors Field makes it a perfect environment for dingers, but you definitely can’t call Story’s record a farce because of it. In fact, Tuesday’s home run was a 433-foot no doubter.
