MLB History: Andruw Jones Youngest Ever To Hit 2 Homers In World Series Game (PHOTOS)

Andruw Jones certainly started his career with a bang. After signing with Atlanta in 1993 as an amateur free agent, the center fielder made his debut with the Braves in 1996. Appearing in just 31 games, the teenager managed to hit five homers and drive in 13 runs as the Braves won the NL East.

But when it came to the postseason, that's where Jones made a name for himself.

Although he didn't do much in the division series against the Dodgers, the 19-year-old made history in the National League Championship Series and World Series.

Playing against St. Louis in the NLCS, Jones scored three runs and belted a homer to become the youngest player ever to go deep in a postseason. In the World Series against the New York Yankees, Jones became the fourth rookie ever to hit two home runs in the same game.

Check out some of the other memorable moments that happened on October 20.
