On Tuesday night Alex Gordon blasted a baseball into the Toronto night (not sky, because dome). This was not just any home run, though. This was the 5,694th home run of the 2017 season, making it the home run-iest season of all time, besting 2000’s mark. The Cardinals have hit 182 of those dingers. So, in honor of the new home run record and for your viewing pleasure, here are some of my favorite Cardinals homers from this year:
This one technically did not count for the record, but was still cool:
This video is not embeddable for some reason, but here is the link to Randal Grichuk’s walkoff homer.
I could not find video for Yadier Molina’s home run hit while his brother, Bengie, broadcast, but that definitely made my list as well.
