Braves slugger Jorge Soler gave Atlanta a quick 1-0 lead in Game 1 on Tuesday when he hammered a leadoff home run to become the first player to ever hit a home run in the very first plate appearance of the World Series.

Yep, in 118 of playing the World Series no one has ever done what Soler did.

Four others had homered in their team’s first plate appearances, but all those came in the bottom half of the first.

Don Buford was the first to do that while with the Orioles in 1969 while Dustin Pedroia in 2007, Alcides Escobar in 2015 and Chris Taylor in 2017 all accomplished the feat.

But Soler stands alone to truly leadoff the World Series with a home run.
