Let's watch a montage of Jose Abreu's first 100 homers, plus No. 101 from Wednesday
On Tuesday night against the D-backs, Jose Abreu reached a milestone with his 100th career homer. Impressively, the 30-year-old reached this plateau in just four Major League seasons since joining the White Sox in 2014.
"First, I want to give thanks to the White Sox organization, because they were the ones who gave me the opportunity to play and reach this milestone," Abreu said to MLB.com's Scott Merkin through an interpreter. "It's something really special for me. It's something to really appreciate."
Abreu reached No. 100 in the video below, but the video above is even better. It begins with Abreu's first long ball (April 8, 2014 against the Rockies' Chad Bettis) and shows Abreu's swings all the way up to 100.
That's a lot of dingers.
No one on the White Sox has homered nearly as many times as Abreu since his arrival, so it's certainly appreciated on their end, too. Even better for them was the fact that Abreu crushed No. 101 the very next day on Wednesday, though they fell to the D-backs, 8-6.
