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.
