‘The 2nd Pujols’, right… St. Louis monster rookie, exceeded the .400 hitter record

Ted Williams also surpassed. There are 3 games left before the new record.

Jordan Walker (20), a rookie from St. Louis who debuted in the major leagues with expectations as the “second Albert Pujols,” hit 10 consecutive games after the opening. He had the second-longest debut hitting streak among players under the age of 20. He lowered Ted Williams’ record of 9 games for a 400 hitter to 3rd.

In an away game against the Colorado Rockies held at Coors Field on the 11th (Korean time), Walker started as the 7th hitter and right fielder and recorded 1 hit in 4 at-bats. With this hit, Walker climbed to second place in the record for consecutive hits immediately after debut by a rookie under the age of 20. The longest run in this division was 12 games by Eddie Murphy (then Philadelphia) in 1912.

Walker was selected in the 1st round, 21st overall, in the 2020 draft and wore a St. Louis uniform. He started his minor league career in 2021 in Single-A and last year in Double-A. His minor league career was 201 games over two years. And he’s starting his season this year in the major leagues, not in Triple-A.

Walker’s career reminds me of the genius hitter who emerged in 2001. It’s Pujols. Pujols was drafted in the 13th round of the 1999 Draft and after playing just 133 minor league games, he made it to the major leagues at the age of 21. His performance in his debut season in 2001 was a batting average of 0.329 OPS of 1.013, 37 home runs and 130 RBIs in 161 appearances. 안전놀이터

Walker has a batting average of 0.342, an OPS of 0.943, 2 home runs and 8 RBIs in 10 games until the 11th. He showed on the field that St. Louis had every reason to be bold.

CBS Sports reported Walker’s 10-game hitting streak and said, “Walker has a chance to continue his record for a few more days. St. Louis will play two more games at Coors Field. Coors Field with its wide outfield is a hitter’s paradise.” Introduced.
