Florida Marlins going for the infield Home Run record

New, 1 comment

The Marlins are the first team in the history of NL to have all four infielders to hit at least 20 home runs in a season.

Saturday, the Marlins put themselves in the record books when they became the first National League team with a 20-homer player at every infield position. They're not quite satisfied.

Five American League teams have done it, but none got 25 homers from each infielder. The Marlins are three-quarters of the way toward becoming the first team to do that after Mike Jacobs hit his 25th Sunday, joiningHanley Ramirez (25) and Dan Uggla(26). Jorge Cantu, who hit his 20th Saturday, has 44 games to get the five he needs.

If there is anything about this club I know, when it comes to breaking home run records: they get the job done.

Let's go Jorge!  We are cheering for you.
