"If a guy's ready, he's (Juan Soto) ready. Doesn't matter his age. I've watched this guy, his ability to hit the ball all over the field is impressive. I've seen him hit balls to left-center field like right-handed hitters. I was just amazed at how mature he was in the batter's box." - Washington Nationals Managers Dave Martinez Dave Martinez (Jamal Collier, 05/20/2018, Nationals call up Soto, youngest player in MLB , Source )

Did you know that Juan Soto is the only Major League player born in 1998, to take the field in 2018, making him the youngest player in the majors? Do you know who was the oldest that same season (Clues: He's Big, he's Sexy, and he was born in 1973)? [ Answer ]
Did you know that Juan Soto kinda hit a home run in his first at-bat? On May 15, 2018, Soto went 3-for-4 at the plate - all singles - with the Harrisburg Senators (Minor League Baseball). On that same day, the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals played a game that was suspended in the bottom of the 6th with the score 3-3, due to inclement weather. Soto was called up to the majors five days later, made his big league debut, pinch hit for Adrian Sanchez in the eighth frame, and struck out in his first Major League at-bat. Fast forward to June 18, 2018, the suspended game mentioned earlier, was completed, at Nationals Park. Soto once again pinch hit, this time for Matt Adams in the sixth frame, and this time Soto hit a home run. Major League Baseball games are not listed by the date they are completed, but rather the date they began, so Soto according to that date, homered on May 15, 2018, five days before he even made his big league debut!
