Welcome to the big leagues, Gary Sanchez.
The New York Yankees rookie did his best Babe Ruth impression and made quite the impact on his team after being called up to the majors, swatting 16 home runs in his first 41 games in pinstripes.
The 23-year-old need the second-fewest at-bats (just 158) of any major leaguer to hit 16 home runs, and he's making Yankee fans forget about a potential rebuilding process. Sanchez was named American League Player of the Week twice in August 2016—the first time a rookie has ever done that in MLB history—and he later took home the American League Player of the Month after posting a .389 batting average with 11 home runs, 21 RBI, nine doubles, and 20 runs scored in just 24 games.
Sanchez might be hanging around the big league club for the foreseeable future.
