Jordan “Sky” Walker’s name is forever in Major League Baseball’s record books after beginning his career with a 12-game hitting streak, the longest streak by a player under 20 in 111 years.  That earns him the top spot on our #HighFive List.


1. Jordan Walker


Coming into Spring Training it was unclear whether or not Walker would even make the Big League roster, but the Atlanta native took matters in his own hands, mashing baseballs throughout February and March and has not looked back since.



He entered the 9th inning of Wednesday’s matchup with the Rockies hitless, but after a single past the shortstop, he extended the streak becoming the youngest player in Major League history to hit safely in all 12 games to start his career.


On the season Walker is batting .319 with eight RBI, two home runs, a stolen base and an .839 OPS.



Walker can extend his hitting streak to lucky number 13 when his Cardinals host Andrew McCutchen and the Pirates this weekend.


2. Aaron Judge


The King of New York is presenting a case to become the first player to repeat as American League MVP since Miguel Cabrera in 2012 and 2013.


Judge had his first multi-homer game of the season Sunday when he hit two against the Baltimore Orioles, giving him 22 off their pitching staff since 2020, the most for any player versus a single team over that time.


 Judge’s streak of reaching base in 45 consecutive games came to an end on Thursday night against Minnesota, but he entered the game with a 1.018 OPS and .318 batting average.


3. Giancarlo Stanton

Stanton takes the three spot on the #HighFive list after being given the honor of being featured in Rob Parker’s Homeboi Highlights.

Before Thursday’s 0-for-4 night, Stanton had reached base in every game this season and has posted a .250 batting average with three homers. 



4. George Springer

A visit in Anaheim from our crew to watch the Angels take on Springer’s Blue Jays last weekend has to be the catalyst for his hot stretch at the plate this week, that included him hitting two home runs and a walk-off 10th inning single Wednesday night against the Tigers.



13 games into his third season with the Jays and Springer already has six walk-off hits for the “Six”. His Jays host the undefeated Tampa Rays who are looking to set the record for the longest winning streak to start a season.


5. Hunter Greene

On and off the mound Hunter “Greene Machine” is holding it down for the city of Cincinnati.



Our own Rachel Hill gave us her “My Two Sense” on the love he shows to the community off the field while Wednesday night in Atlanta Greene once again the handcuffs he can put on opposing lineups.

He got the no decision after going six innings, striking out 10 and issuing zero walks.  He is one of three Reds pitchers to have a game with 10 strikeouts and no walks before turning 24 and is the only to do it twice.


Greene will have to put on another show for the Cincinnati crowd in his next start Monday against the Rays who have the best record in baseball.
