Everyone, it’s time to start boarding the Juan Soto hype train. The Washington Nationals’ outfielder hit his first MLB home run in his second at-bat of his career. Soto hit a three-run bomb to the visitor’s bullpen in the bottom of the second inning.

It’s also worth mentioning that the home run, which sparked a five-run inning, was Soto’s first career MLB hit.
Soto was called up to the big leagues after Howie Kendrick suffered a season-ending achilles injury.
Juan Soto just hit a three-run home run on the first pitch Erlin threw him. He really, really did.— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) May 21, 2018
Soto, 19, is the youngest player in the MLB and the first player in league that was born in 1998.
This also makes me feel bad because I’m sitting in my living room watching the game, while Soto, who is younger than me, is blasting home runs in Nationals Park.
But, who cares. That home run was amazing. Why not watch it again?
