White Sox's Adam Engel robs three home runs in a single week

Usually, an outfielder robbing a hitter of a home run occurs maybe once or twice in an entire season.

For Adam Engel of the Chicago White Sox, he did it three times in a week. THREE TIMES!

The 26-year-old centerfielder began his quest to web gem domination last week against the Yankees, when he robbed Greg Bird of the Yankees. The following night, he took away a home run from Kyle Higashioka. And then Sunday against the Indians, Engel robbed his third home run in six games. The hitter this time was Cleveland’s Yonder Alonso, who after seeing the catch, took his helmet off in disbelief.

Engel is in his second season with the White Sox after being selected by Chicago in the 19th round of the 2013 MLB Draft. He made his debut last year, and in 2018 has seen action in 104 games.

A follower of Christ, Engel and his wife, Jaime, are the parents of two little girls. On his Twitter bio, he says he loves Jesus, and in a tweet from last October, he shared why his faith will always be found in Christ.

Engel will look to make a fourth home run robbery in seven days Monday in Detroit against the Tigers. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. ET.
