BEFORE FAME

Charlie was a multi-sport athlete at North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee, GA, and a three-time academic Player of the Year.

CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Charlie’s 29 home runs as a leadoff hitter in 2016 were the most in the Major Leagues and the most in the National League since Alfonso Soriano and Hanley Ramirez hit 29 and 32 home runs, respectively, in 2008. The 29 home runs in ’16 are tied for the seventh-most by a leadoff hitter in NL history. Charlie recorded his NL-best 10th lead-off home run of the season and the 22nd of his career in the ‘16 season finale vs. Milwaukee. Both are Rockies franchise records. He became just the fifth player in major-league history to record 10 or more lead-off home runs in a season and his 82 RBI in ‘16 are tied for the fourth-most in National League history (with Jimmy Rollins). In a three-game series at Philadelphia August 12-14, 2016, Charlie hit five home runs – the most in a three-game series in franchise history.

FUN FACT

Charlie had three games of at least 5-for-5 for the Rockies in 2014, joining Hall of Famers Ty Cobb (1922), Tris Speaker (1923), Stan Musial (1948) and Tony Gwynn (1993) as well as Ichiro Suzuki (2004) as the only five players to accomplish that feat.
