While the world of baseball focused on the New York Yankees and many of their home runs, someone else entered the conversation.
CJ Cron, the Colorado Rockies’ first baseman, is rolling a lot himself, blasting another home run as the Rockies won the final 5-3 in yesterday’s game against the San Francisco Giants.
Krone’s home run was his 10th so far this season, making him the first player in the national league to reach double digits in total.
MLB tweeted about Kron’s achievement, with a graphic of his number 10 on the back.

Cron is on
While Aaron Judge, Anthony Rizzo and Giancarlo Stanton illuminate it in the American League, Crown is doing exactly the same thing in the NL.
He’s got a power stroke that’s just as good as anyone else in the game, and he’s one of the main contributors to the Rockies so far.
He also got .969 OPS, a .310 batting average and 30 RBIs in his first 144 at-bat of the 2022 season.
Last season also had a tough year for Crone himself, going 28 times deeper, driving 92 runs and hitting for a .281 batting average.
He’s been starting his success since a year ago and seems to be giving a spark to the Rockies lineup.
He’s a tough start for the Rockies and one of the reasons why they’re still hanging around the .500 mark.
Strength is always there, but on the course field, it is much easier to hit home runs according to height.
In short, it was the perfect place for a man like Kron to play and contributed to his red-hot start that allowed him to become the first NL player to reach double-digit home runs.
