GENNETT IS NOW THE ALL-TIME SCOOTER HR KING

Thanks to our friends at Baseball-Reference.com we now know that the Reds slugger Ryan Joseph Gennett, aka Scooter Gennett is the all-time home run leader amongst Scooters.

Back story: Gennett has gone by “Scooter” since he was a young kid watching the show Muppet Babies. He first used the nickname as an “alias” to a police officer when his mother brought him to the station for a scare because he would not put on his seat belt.
