At just 20 years, 211 days, Jasson Domínguez joins an elite club of young sluggers, becoming the 2nd-youngest player since 1900 with 3 HRs in his first 5 games.

Jasson Dominguez hits his first HR at Yankee Stadium

Jasson Dominguez becomes the Yankees' youngest player to debut when he steps onto the field vs. the Astros at Minute Maid Park on September 1, 2023.

This achievement didn’t go unnoticed by fans and experts alike. Domínguez’s powerful hit, a 110.2 mph shot, was a game-changer that gave the New York Yankees a 2-1 lead over the Detroit Tigers. This was his third home run in just his fifth MLB game, making him only the second Yankee to accomplish this remarkable feat. His rapid ascent in the league has captured the attention of baseball enthusiasts and pundits.

Aaron Boone, the Yankees’ manager, has been closely following Domínguez’s development. Prior to the game, he discussed what impressed him the most about Clarke Schmidt’s development, Oswaldo Cabrera’s struggles, and Nestor Cortes’s potential season-ending absence. However, it was Dominguez’s demeanor that seemed to impress Boone the most, highlighting the young star’s composure and maturity on the field.

Dominguez’s journey to the Yankee Stadium was a remarkable one. He made his MLB debut with a pair of two-run homers in Houston, showcasing his prowess against formidable opponents like Justin Verlander. His instant impact in the league ignited excitement among fans.

Before his first appearance at Yankee Stadium, Dominguez received advice from his manager to acknowledge the Bleacher Creatures when they initiated the roll call.

His response was nothing short of epic, as he channeled the iconic E.T. phone home sign, charming the crowd with his youthful enthusiasm.

After game 1 against the Tigers, Dominguez said that had never seen E.T. in his life, besides the fact that made the gesture.

Dominguez’s rise to fame in the MLB is a testament to his talent and dedication. As he continues to make headlines with his powerful performances, it’s clear that he is a rising star worth keeping an eye on. Baseball enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating more memorable moments from this young sensation as he leaves his mark on the sport.
