The Minneapolis Ravens third baseman who has been on a hot-hitting streak this year has finally done it. David Baker has set the new Bull League record for hit-streaks, at 32 games – and it’s still going!
The 28-year-old switch-hitter could not help but break out a wide grin when he singled to leadoff the first inning against the Boston Brawlers tonight.
Baker continued to rack up hits through the game, despite the Ravens falling 5-2 to the Brawlers at home. He singled again in the 6th, and doubled in the 9th.
At 32 games, Baker now holds the record for longest hitting streak, and will look to extend it to 33 as the Ravens continue their home stand against the Brawlers tomorrow.
The previous record was 31 games, set by Norfolk’s second baseman Miguel Ortega, back on July 19, 2014, when he was playing for the Calgary Inferno.
The only other player to extend a hit streak to 30 games or more was Eric Mail a former outfielder who reached 30 games in 2000 for the Montreal Metros.
