Corey Seager became the Los Angeles Dodgers’ all-time leader at shortstop with his 44th home run on Wednesday night against the Chicago White Sox.

In just his second full season, he has already passed every Los Angeles Dodger before him. His 4th inning shot off of Carlos Rodon of the Chicago White Sox put him at the top of the Dodger record books.

Seager passed Rafael Furcal, who was the Dodgers shortstop from 2006-2011. He does not hold the Dodgers all-time record, just the Los Angeles Dodger record as the all-time record belongs to Pee Wee Reese who hit 126 career home runs.

Bill Russell, the longtime Dodger shortstop had 46 career home runs, but he did not hit all 46 of them while he was playing the shortstop position, meaning that Corey Seager has officially passed him as well.

It will be quite some time before Corey Seager reaches the great Pee Wee Reese, but it looks like it is definitely within reach.
