Astros pitcher Justin Verlander joined the 2,500 strikeout club on Wednesday night during a shutout win over the Angels.  He became only the 33rd Major League pitcher to reach the mark.

The historical night prompted Justin to share a video of his first ever strikeout.  The video shows the right hander recording his first ever strikeout in his backyard.

Even back then he knew to waste the 0-2 pitch.  A young Justin was also into film study, as he immediately wanted to see his first K.
