Florida’s all-star second baseman, and All Year Cooling sponsor, Dan Uggla is a two-time all-star and is considered as one of the game’s top second basemen. But he’s also about to make history with one more home run.
Uggla currently sits at 29 home runs. If he hits one more this season, he’ll become the first second baseman in major league history to hit 30 home runs in four different seasons. Better yet, with one more homer, Uggla will have hit 30 or more home runs in four consecutive seasons. His career high in that category is 32 and he could surpass that total with a strong September.
Consider the all-time great second basemen (Joe Gordon, Joe Morgan, Ryne Sandberg, Jeff Kent, etc.) and the accomplishment is that much more impressive. Florida takes on Washington tonight and then Atlanta over the weekend. While Uggla is day-to-day with an injury, keep your eyes peeled for baseball history over the next couple series.
