Carlos Quentin made baseball history on Tuesday night in a game against the San Francisco Giants. Quentin became the first player to hit a home run at Petco Park since the San Diego Padres moved there in 2004. The power hitting outfielder would add another home run later in the eighth inning, too.

While others will likely make the trot around the bases at Petco someday, it’s very unlikely that anyone will clobber the ball quite like Quentin did when faced with a sad middle-middle fastball from Tim Lincecum. In fact, the only object that has or will ever travel farther within the confines of Petco is Quentin’s own bat, which he flipped to the moon after connecting on his first home run.

Breaking Update

Quentin nearly bettered his own record bat-flip distance after sending a Jeremy Affeldt shit-ball over the wall in dead center field.

We have concluded that Carlos Quentin is a BAWSE that some team could be forced to grossly overpay for later this season.

    Huh? Is there some snark I’m missing? I know others have hit home runs there in the past 8 years. Was there something special about this home run for his career that you missed in your piece?

  2. Am I reading this right? Or missing sarcasm?

    Petco has surrendered 30 HRs this season alone.

  3. You guys are just way smarter than me.

  4. The spectators are great in both these gifs

    In the first one the two ‘O’ face guys on the far left, and on the second one all the people in the background suddenly look up from texting or whatever to see what’s up with the loud noises coming from the baseball game they’re busy ignoring

  5. His bats keep giving fucks and he keeps tossing them away for it.
