Trevor Story hasn’t always lived up to some fan expectations this year, but Boston Red Sox fans can now be happy that he has finally hit a home run.
The Boston Red Sox decided to pay a decent bit of money to Trevor Story in hopes of having a productive, powerful, and generally pretty reliable home run hitting threat on their roster. And, well, that hasn’t exactly played out so far this season.
Sure, they got Story, but they haven’t had any home runs out of him. Up until Wednesday evening, that is. Finally, on Wednesday, Story managed to hit his first home run for the Red Sox. For the first time during the 2022 MLB season, Story finally hit a home run.
And of course, that storied home run gave Red Sox fans plenty of cause to celebrate.

The home run happened to come in the second inning of the Red Sox’ game against the Atlanta Braves. With one out and Alex Verdugo already on second base, Story happened to launch a home run 422 feet out past centerfield.
And that thrilled Red Sox fans on Twitter.
Folks had memes and tweets ready to go to celebrate that home run.
Red Sox fans have been waiting a little while for this! Their favorite team has been struggling this season and Story, someone who was brought in to help the Red Sox succeed this season, took a while to actually hit a home run.
And he finally made it happen. Of course, at the end of the day, that home run wasn’t exactly enough and the Red Sox fell by a score of 5-3. Boston is now 11-20 on the season.
