Toronto's Joey Votto Joins Elite Club


Joey Votto was drafted straight out of Richview Collegiate Institute in Etobicoke by the Cincinnati Reds.  He made his MLB debut in September 2007, hitting a home run in his 2nd at bat.

Last night, against the Chicago Cubs, Votto went deep three times.  It was his 57th career game, and only a small handful of players have hit 3 homers in a single game this early in their career.  In fact, according to Stat of the Day, only 4 other players have done it since 1956.

Votto's the best Toronto-born ballplayer since Rob Ducey.
