Where Are Manny Machados Parents From?

On August 9, against the Kansas City Royals, the Orioles promoted Machado from Double-A Bowie Baysox to MLB. Because the team already had J. J. Hardy at shortstop, he started at third base.

He hit his first and second career home runs the next day against the same opponent, making him the youngest Oriole and the 12th youngest player in big league history to record a multi-homer game.

Luke Hochevar, the former first-round pick, was responsible for both home runs.

On August 12, he hit his third career home run off Bruce Chen. Machado hit his first career postseason home run in Game 3 of the 2012 ALDS. The Orioles were defeated by the New York Yankees in a five-game division series.

On May 27, Machado recorded three hits, giving him 40 multi-hit games in his career, tying Ty Cobb for the most multi-hit games in major league history before the age of 21; on May 30, he went 2-for-3 to break Cobb’s record.

Machado’s 44 hits in May 2013 were the second-most by a player under the age of 21 in a month, trailing only Mickey Mantle’s 46 in July 1952.

Machado led the major leagues with 25 doubles and was tied for the league lead in hits (79) with AL MVP Miguel Cabrera at the end of May.

Machado’s 37th double came exactly halfway through the season, putting him on track to surpass the single-season record (67) in his first complete season.
