Bo Bichette accomplishes a feat last done by Ted Williams in 1939

Blue Jays rookie shortstop Bo Bichette is having a pretty good start to his career. He debuted on July 29, registering at least one hit in each of his 11 games. Additionally, after homering in the fifth inning on Thursday night against the Yankees, Bichette has an extra-base hit in nine consecutive games. Per Sportsnet Stats, he is the first rookie since Ted Williams in 1939 to record an extra-base hit in nine straight games.

Mind you, “alienate every sportswriter in Boston” is less impressive than it was in Williams’ time, given how many Boston newspapers have closed between 1939 and today.
