Witt Jr. Makes History with Home Run
Tuesday, January 25th , 2022
With one historic and mighty swing at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick Bobby Witt Jr. of the WDL AL East wrote his name in the league record book. Home run number 8 made it official. He now holds the record for most homers in a season, snapping the old mark of Ryobe Kamida, the previous record holder. Interviewed after the game Witt Jr. said, "Don't get me wrong. I loved setting the new home run record. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the cheers and hullabaloo, but I don't think the records I've set will be the thing I'll most remember from baseball. Those will be broken and fade away over time, but the most cherished memories for me will be the teams I played for, my teammates, the families, friends, fans and the communities. They will always hold a very special and lasting place in my heart."

Bobby Witt Jr. singled in the 1st, flied out in the 4th and homered off Ryan Hagenow in the 6th.

Thus far in 2021 Witt Jr. is hitting .306 with 8 home runs, 15 RBIs, 13 runs scored and has compiled a .404 OBP.
