Minnesota Twins Player Scores 2 Millionth Run In MLB History
Major League Baseball History dates all the way back to 1876, and 145 years later, it was Josh Donaldson who scored run number 2 million.
The Minnesota Twins are playing some better baseball, winning 7 of their last 9, and in the midst of that, it was Josh Donaldson who plated run number 2 million in MLB History in a 6-5 win over the Kansas City Royals.
Going into the day, it was noted that the sixth run scored on the day across MLB, would be no 2,000,000. Donaldson scored on a Nelson Cruz double early in the game that, after a few confirmations, it was confirmed that Donaldson plated the historic run, according to MLB.com.
"The Elias Sports Bureau, the official statisticians of MLB, recently verified the total number of runs scored in anticipation of this milestone."
Baseball has been around for many, many years, in fact, its history is even hard to pinpoint many milestones. But, MLB's first history tracked that the first run was scored by the Red Stockings’ catcher, Tim McGinley.
Not only will Josh Donaldson have the story of playing in the big leagues, but he now also gets to tell the story of scoring MLB's 2 millionth run.
Talk about an amazing milestone. Throughout the history of MLB, there have been many different milestones reached, and now there have been 2,000,000 runs scored.
