With his first inning lead-off home run, Vance Honeycutt has officially tied the UNC baseball program's all-time home run record!

Honeycutt is now tied with Devy Bell (1984-1987) at the top of the list with 57 home runs. The current Diamond Heels' center fielder will have the opportunity to secure sole possession of the record over the final stretch of the 2024 season.

Let's set the scene, as Honeycutt worked a 2-2 count to lead off for the Tar Heels. He deposited the 2-2 offering over the right centerfield fence for his record-tying blast.

In case you missed it, check out the highlight below!

Honeycutt has put together an incredible career for the UNC baseball program as he continues to secure his place in the Diamond Heels record books. This milestone is just another reminder of just how good Honeycutt has been as a Tar Heel, as he is in line to draw plenty of interest from MLB teams once this year's MLB Draft comes along.

Until that time comes, Honeycutt and the Diamond Heels have more business to take care of, as the goal is to make a deep run to Omaha. With the way he's been hitting, don't be surprised if Honeycutt claims this illustrious record for his own in the near future.

Heck, he may even add some distance between him and Bell on the list before its all said and done.
