Dodgers News: Corey Seager Sets New Postseason Homer Record



The Dodgers shortstop is on another level this October. After missing the 2018 World Series following Tommy John surgery, and playing at a reduced level in the 2017 series with that elbow barking, Corey Seager has made a statement this postseason with the glove and especially with the bat.

In fact, he’s made a record-setting statement with that bat.

With his 8th inning home run in game 2 against the Rays, Seager set a postseason record for homers by a shortstop in a postseason with 7.

The NLCS MVP has been a steadying force in the lineup behind Mookie Betts nearly all season. Fully healthy for the first time since his All-Star season in 2016, Seags took off in 2020. He finished with the second-most home runs by shortstops in the regular season (15) and was second in OPS (.943)

And, as one more funny bar trivia note (remember bars?), Seager also now has the all-time record for home runs hit at Globe Life Field — the home ballpark of the Texas Rangers.

The Dodgers continue their quest for a World Series tonight in Arlington with Walker Buehler on the mound against veteran Charlie Morton of the Rays.
