Despite beginning his career with the Georgia Bulldogs as a walk-on, Charlie Condon is now becoming one of the greatest players in program history. Last night, Condon hit his 34th home run of the season, to break the BBCOR era single season home run record.

The BBCOR era began on January 1st, 2011 when college baseball completely switched to new composite bats. This allowed the NCAA to have new record holders due to the change in equipment.

This record was previously set by the Florida Gators two-way star, Jac Caglianone. He hit 33 home runs in the 2023 season to break the previous record of 32 homers. The all time home run record in all of college baseball is 48 from Pete Incaviglia in 1985.

Condon broke Caglianone's record in 23 less games. It took Caglianone 71 games to get to 33 home runs, but it took Condon just 48. This is quite impressive and he is not done yet. The Bulldogs are going to get a good seed in the SEC Tournament, but will not get a first round bye. They also will make it to a regional, whether it is home or as a two seed elsewhere.

Condon is 14 home runs away from tying the all time record, but that is going to be very hard to do with the point in the season that we are at.

With the home run in last nights game, Condon has hit a home run in eight consecutive games. The current division one record is nine games from Tyler Bosetti in 2011 and Jac Caglianone earlier in 2024.

This season has been incredible for Charlie Condon as he has jumped up to the number one overall draft prospect. Through 48 games, Condon has a .459 batting average with 34 home runs and 71 runs batted in. He also has an OPS of 1.684, which includes an on-base percentage of .570 and a slugging percentage of 1.114.

Condon has been incredible this season and he is not done yet. He has a chance to break even more records, but for now, he is the new BBCOR era single season home run leader.
