New York Yankees first baseman Anthony Rizzo records a historic 300th career HR against Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday at American Family Field. He became the 161st player in MLB history to record this score. 

Rizzo commented how this would be recorded in history and it’ll be memorable to “reflect back and take time to just appreciate how hard it is and how much fun it’s been along the way.” His incredible feat earned huge applause from not only the crowd but also his teammates and manager.

Aaron Judge spoke highly of the veteran baseballer noting how “it speaks volumes.” He added it’s “pretty special” to have Rizzo in the locker room donning the pinstripes and playing alongside him all these years.

Getting the chance to play with him, I watched him from afar for so many years. To get him here in pinstripes…For him to be part of that list and counting is pretty special.
Aaron Judge as per Greg Joyce of NY Post.

Judge himself is the next closest player to record 300th career HR as he currently goes by 263. Furthermore, Rizzo became the 12th active player to achieve the feat, including teammate Giancarlo Stanton.

NY Yankees manager Aaron Boone also complimented Rizzo saying, “It’s nothing to sneeze at…it’s something to be proud of.” He added how there are not many players who can put on a major league uniform and what Rizzo has done is incredible.

It’s amazing. It’s awesome…For me, that’s big…This game, it comes out of nowhere.
