In 2019, all thirty MLB teams combined for a record-shattering 6,776 home runs in the regular season, eclipsing the 6,105 grand total in 2017. Amidst the countless milestones that got reached surrounding the “longball” statistic was the 307 that the Minnesota Twins hit, beating-out the New York Yankees’ 306 by the narrowest of margins and surpassing the Yankees 267 in 2018.
In a post-game interview with Bally Sports North’s Audra Martin on May 26th, 2019, Twins’ Eddie Rosario was asked, “Covey [Dylan Covey] got you on the changeup the first at-bat, you came back, second time around, he threw it again on the first pitch, and that time you took [it] out of the park. What adjustment did you make”?
Rosario responded with, “… The next at-bat, I wanna try to look into the changeup, [he] throw perfect, I wanna try to hit it hard, I hit a bomba”!
