“Akuna Jr.’s jersey was the top seller in the first half of the season,” ESPN reported on Wednesday, citing an announcement from Major League Baseball’s official online shop.

“Ohtani was right behind him,” ESPN added.

In 89 games this year, Akuna Jr. batted .331 with 21 home runs, 55 RBIs, 79 runs scored, and 41 stolen bases. With his power and speed, he made major league history by reaching 20 home runs and 40 doubles before the first half was over.

“It’s the first time an Atlanta player has led the league in jersey sales since the league began tracking sales in 2010,” the outlet noted.

Acuna Jr. also received overwhelming fan support in the All-Star Fan Vote.

The National League outfielder received 3.026 million votes in this year’s All-Star Fan Ballot, topping both major leagues.

Ohtani finished second to Acuna Jr. in jersey sales following the All-Star fan vote.

Ohtani, the American League’s designated hitter, received 2,663,307 fan votes. That’s the most votes in the American League and second in all of Major League Baseball.

Fernando Tatis Jr. (San Diego Padres) was third in jersey sales.

Tatis Jr. has made an impact despite missing the first part of this season due to an 80-game suspension after being caught using a banned substance last year.

Aaron Judge (New York Yankees), Jose Altuve (Houston Astros), Mookie Betts (Los Angeles Dodgers), Julio Rodriguez (Seattle), Matt Olson (Atlanta), Alex Bregman (Houston), and Mike Trout (Los Angeles Angels) round out the top 10 in jersey sales.
