Marlins’ Jerar Encarnacion has a debut for the ages

by carlislewillard

Baseball people love to say that when you go to the ballpark, there’s a  good chance you’ll witness something you’ve never seen.

That was never more true than Sunday when rookie Marlins’ Jerar Encarnacion hit an opposite-field grand slam for his first major-league hit. It was just his third at-bat overall.

Before that, Encarnacion was in a perfect position after the Mets’ Tomás Nido sent a ball off the right-field wall. Encarnacion’s throw to second easily nailed Rojas.

Encarnacion is the first player to hit a grand slam, steal a base and record an outfield assist in his MLB debut.
