Trevor Story homers for the Colorado Rockies on Father’s Day 2018 in his native Texas
Fast forward to 2018 and Trevor Story, a native of Irving, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, returns to play in Texas against the Texas Rangers for the first time.
In the stadium he grew up watching games in, he hit a two-run home run on Father’s Day in front of dozens of family and friends in attendance.
When we spoke with Story in August about returning to Dallas again, he told us that the home run was one of the moments he was most proud of in his career.
Rockies fans may not remember the game as fondly, as it was the prime example of the Rockies’ “super bullpen” epically imploded. Jake McGee, Bryan Shaw, and Wade Davis all allowed at least one run and Davis allowed four runs in just one-third of an inning. He got the loss as the Rockies lost by a score of 13-12.

Trevor Story’s 2018 ASG homer against Charlie Morton
In his first All-Star Game selection, Trevor Story was among three Colorado Rockies (Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon being the other two) were selected to the 2018 MLB All-Star Game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
In the 6th inning, Story came into the game as a replacement and in the seventh inning, he faced Charlie Morton in his first All-Star Game AB. On the second pitch he saw, he tied the game up at 2 on a line-drive homer to left field.
Story started the offense for both teams as both teams exploded after his homer. The American League ended up winning by a score of 8-6.
