Lara-Cinisomo: Cesar breaks Texas League hitting streak record that stood for nearly 50 years

From Vincent Lara-Cinisomo at on June 22, 2018:

A record that had stood for nearly 50 years on a 130-year-old circuit fell quickly Thursday.

Double-A Corpus Christi’s Randy Cesar doubled on the first pitch he saw from Frisco right-hander Tyler Wagner to extend his hitting streak to 38 games, topping the previous Texas League mark set in 1969 by Bobby Trevino of the El Paso Sun Kings. He went 3-for-4 and scored once in the Hooks’ 4-2 win over the RoughRiders at Whataburger Field.

Cesar tied the record on Wednesday, so he was well aware of what was at stake in his first at-bat Thursday.

“Of course. I feel very proud,” he said after the game.

During the streak, Cesar has batted .381 with seven homers, a triple, 10 doubles and 28 RBIs.
