The 2023 season sets a home run record for the Tampa Bay Rays. Saturday afternoon against the Chicago White Sox (GameTracker), Randy Arozarena swatted a first inning two-run home run against AL Cy Young runner-up Dylan Cease at Tropicana Field, giving Tampa a home run in all 21 games this year. That’s a new record to begin the season.

The all-time record is 31 straight games with a home run by the 2019 New York Yankees. The Rays are one of 17 teams all-time to hit a home run in 22 straight games (dating back to last season). As a reminder, 2019 was the year of the home run. Several league home run records were broken that year, so the 2019 Yankees and 2019 Mariners had their thumb on the scale a bit.
