HAS IT BEEN FIVE YEARS ALREADY? Javier Báez today celebrates the five-year anniversary of his major league debut, August 5, 2014, at Coors Field.
Javy hit a game-winning solo homer in the 12th inning for his first major league hit, becoming the first player in club history to hit an extra-inning homer in his big league debut.
In the past five years, Javy has batted .271 (605-for-2,230) with 125 doubles, 16 homers, 107 homers, 342 RBI and 58 stolen bases in 636-career regular-season games.
Javy has accumulated two All-Star nods, a 2018 Silver Slugger, a 2016 NLCS Co-MVP, a World Series ring and many, many, many highlight plays.
