Soto joins trio of HOFers with exclusive career achievement
Juan Soto hit his 100th career double on Saturday, earning him an achievement of round-number milestones that only three inner-circle Hall of Famers attained before.
On top of the century mark for doubles, the Washington Nationals superstar has accrued 100 homers, 300 RBIs, 400 walks, and 500 hits before turning 24 years old.
Only Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, and Mel Ott accomplished that feat at 23 or younger.
Here's where Williams, Mantle, and Ott sat in those statistical categories when they turned 24. Soto also included, is still more than 100 days shy of his 24th birthday.
Soto is the first player to join the list since the 1950s.
The former All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger is in the midst of yet another impressive campaign, entering Saturday hitting .232/.376/.427 with eight homers and four stolen bases for the last-place Nationals.
