Ian Happ just crushed a monster homer, which would be noteworthy and majestic in its own right.
But the homer was also historic:

Together with Anthony Rizzo (30), Kris Bryant (24), Kyle Schwarber (22), Willson Contreras (21), and Javy Baez (20), Happ’s blast gave the Cubs a whopping six players with at least 20 homers, which is something never before accomplished in franchise history. Yeah, yeah, juiced ball and all that, but it’s still very impressive.
Even more impressive? Look at the names after Rizzo. Notice anything? How about this – it’s a Major League record:
