One player made it rain home runs and finally showed the KC Royals and it’s fans what his worth is, making history on the team.
In doing a top 5 moments each month series, it’s likely that one could almost find 5 moments from every month that include Jorge Soler. Soler had a great year with the KC Royals and he instilled hope in many fans, proving that the team was right to bring him over in a trade that saw veteran Wade Davis off to Chicago.
Soler had that chip on his shoulder, knowing that he was supposed to be something special. In 2019, Soler proved his worth, and in September, his work finally brought him to the point of history.
On September 3, with runners on the corners and a 2-2 pitch coming from the mound, Soler sent a ball flying and recorded his 39th home run of the season.
Just a few days earlier, Soler had tied the record of 38 previously set by Mike Moustakas. Moustakas was happy to his record broken and had some kind words of congratulations to say to Soler.
Just a day after his 39th, Soler would send another ball into the stands hitting 40, breaking his own record again. Soler continued this trend through the month and found himself breaking his own record, again and again, solidifying his place in Royals history and in the future hopes of the franchise.
