Tuesday night was a huge night for the San Diego Padres and a historical night for third baseman Christian Villanueva. The Padres took their first win of the season with a score of 8-4 against the Colorado Rockies – three of those being home run hitters by 26-year-old rookie, Villanueva. This has made Villanueva the second Padres rookie player ever to hit three home runs in a single game.

Villanueva’s home run hitters were blasted out of the field at a speed of 105, 106 and 107 mph, according to mlb.com.

Here’s a video that shows you how far Villanueva hit his three home runs:

Not only does this victory make Villanueva the second Padres rookie player ever to hit three home runs in a single game, it also makes him the fifth Mexican baseball player ever to hit three home runs in a single game. Moreover, it makes him the third baseball player to have a three home run game in the first 15 games of his career since 1908, according to the Padres radio network.

This amazing victory had Padres fans completely  and utterly *shook*.

This will definitely go down in baseball history and he’ll for sure be the toast of San Diego for a long time.

This video shows the level of excitement fans felt after Villanueva’s third home run.


Padres fans were so pumped after Villanueva’s third home run, that he was congratulated with a curtain call – the first curtain call for the Padres since the 2015 season, according to mlb.com.  

And with this type of performance, Padres fans are hoping that Villanueva gets more playing time, considering that he isn’t the starting third baseman for the team.


In a post-interview with Fox Sports, Villanueva said in Spanish, “This is a dream come true.”

Congratulations, Villanueva! 🇲🇽 ⚾️🏆
