Nats’ Soto, 19, puts on show with 2 HRs in NY

2:00 AM ET

NEW YORK — Juan Soto has been a big leaguer for nearly a month, and Wednesday he did something that only three other players in the live ball era had previously accomplished.

When the 19-year-old Washington Nationals rookie hit a pair of home runs in a 5-4 road win over the New York Yankees, he became just the fourth teenager to ever have a multihomer game at any iteration of Yankee Stadium.

Real or not? Juan Soto best of baseball’s great rookie class

Which talented rookie will be the biggest star? With respect to Shohei Ohtani, Gleyber Torres and Ronald Acuna Jr., we’ll take the Nats’ Juan Soto.

Soto’s fourth- and seventh-inning homers were the first for a 19-year-old in a regular-season game at the stadium since Ken Griffey Jr. hit two home runs in a game at the old Yankee Stadium on May 30, 1989. Griffey was 19 years, 190 days old. Soto hit his homers at 19 years, 231 days old.

As a teenager, Brian McCall hit the only two homers of his career
