42-year-old pitcher Bartolo Colon hit his first career home run and the internet went wild

After 19 Years, This Baseball Player Finally Hit His First Home Run

The impossible has happened. Bartolo Colon hit a home run.

The portly, 42-year-old pitcher, who has become somewhat of a cult figure for his wild at bats, hit his first career home run on Saturday off of San Diego Padres pitcher James Shields. The home run came in Colon's 226th at bat and the call by the Mets announcers was pretty epic.

Needless to say, social media had a field day.
