UGA’s Charlie Condon continues home run streak with towering blast, chasing NCAA history

Charlie Condon continued his home run hot streak by smashing a 3-run blast on Sunday against Vanderbilt.

The Georgia slugger is chasing NCAA history with dingers in 7 straight contests. Condon’s latest long ball went an estimated 419 feet, an exit velocity of 107 MPH off the bat and a launch angle of 29.53 degrees.

For Condon, it’s his 33rd homer of the season. The number matches Florida star Jac Caglianone’s 33 homers last season, tying a BBCOR-era NCAA record (2011-present) and the second-most in SEC history.

This season, Caglianone homered in 9 consecutive games, tying an NCAA record from 2021. Condon could join that club if he leaves the yard on Thursday and Friday at South Carolina. If Condon homers in all 3 games against the Gamecocks, he will break the NCAA record.

Condon and Caglianone will face off when Florida visits Athens on the final weekend of the 2024 regular season (May 16-18). In addition to being a slugging first baseman, Caglianone also pitches Florida’s weekend series finales. Caglianone pitching to Condon is sure to have the attention of the college baseball world.
