Jones Youngest to Homer in World Series

Playing in New York, the Atlanta Braves embarrassed the Yankees in the opening game of the World Series with a 12-1 win. In his first at-bat, 19-year-old Andruw Jones hit a home run to become the youngest player to homer in the history of the World Series. During his second at-bat, Jones hit another home run to become the second player to hit back-to-back home runs in his first appearance in the World Series.
