Dodgers News: Seager’s Doubles and Home Runs Make History

We all know how talented Corey Seager is. He leads the Dodgers in almost all of the major batting statistics such as home runs, average, hits, and runs. He was chosen to participate in the 2016 Home Run Derby and was also named a reserve on the 2016 All-Star Team!

The kid is having a phenomenal rookie season for the Dodgers and is a top candidate to receive the National League Rookie of the Year award. He has already done the next best thing which is win a National League Rookie of the Month award for the month of June!

Well, the kid’s list of accomplishments just got a little longer. On Sunday, though the Dodgers lost to Arizona 6-5, Seager made history! He became the first Dodger ever to have a game with 3 home runs and a game with 3 doubles in the same season! With today’s three doubles, Seager also tied Brandon Belt for the most doubles in the national league with 27!

With a resume already longer than some veterans, Seager has the opportunity to make it even longer and match the great Jackie Robinson in a few categories! Like stated earlier, Seager leads the club in hits which has only been done by 4 other rookies, Jackie Robinson being the first.

He also had a 19-game hit streak which is now the 2nd longest hit streak by a rookie in Los Angeles, Dodger blue. However, when you include the Brooklyn days, Robinson takes the crown with 21. Lastly, if he continues to lead the club in hits, runs, and home runs, he would be the first rookie to do so since, you guessed it, Jackie Robinson.

This is just the beginning of Seager’s long and fruitful career that he is going to have. It is so fun and exciting to watch all that he is accomplishing now knowing that it is just the tip of the iceberg. Over here at Dodgers Nation, we’re just happy to be able to witness and experience the kid, Corey Seager!
