Chicago Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo is doing things that no other lead off hitter has ever done in major league history.

On the second pitch of Tuesday night's game, Rizzo smacked a 432-foot solo homer to centerfield. The home run extends his hitting streak to 14 games and it is the third time he has led off the Cubs' first inning with a homer.

Rizzo is tied for 4th in MLB with three leadoff home runs this season in only his seventh game at leadoff according to ESPN Stats. His seven at-bats to lead off games this season, he has a homer, homer, walk, single, double, bunt single, and a homer.
