Card Of The Week September 15

Kind of obvious who's getting singled out for card of the week today:

2012 Calbee #116
Coco hit two home runs today, breaking both the single season NPB home run record (Sadaharu Oh in 1964) with home run #56 and the single season Asian professional baseball home run record (the KBO's Seung-Yeop Lee in 2003) with home run #57.  (H/T Yakyu Baka on passing Lee.)

Here's #56:

And here's a great video created by Gen of Yakyu Baka showing home runs 1-55, with data, ballpark and pitcher for each one:

Thanks for posting the video of #56. I love baseball history in the making, even if it's an ocean away.

He's definitely going to fulfill Oh's wish that whomever breaks the record, breaks it by a lot.
