Gary Sanchez doing things never done in pinstripes before

No one can deny that the Yankee’s are baseball’s royalty with a long successful storied history that began when Babe Ruth first donned those pinstripes.

Yet in that long history, no Yankee has ever done what Gary Sanchez has done this month. Last night Sanchez slugged his 9th home in only his 18th game thus becoming the first Yankee to ever hit nine home runs in their first 21 games.

Gary Sanchez, c, Yankees. Sanchez hit his ninth homer in 18 games this month as the Yankees beat Seattle 5-0 on Wednesday. Sanchez’s nine homers are the most ever for a Yankee in his first 21 games.

Sanchez in just 75 PA is tied with Grandal and LuCroy for most more home runs by a catcher in the second half.

He has a wRC+ of 261.

All this from a guy with a fairly pedestrian minor league career
