Pirates Rookie Tony Sanchez Gets First MLB Hit Stuck In Scoreboard [VIDEO]

Over the course of the last few season, we have seen our fair share of young guys make an immediate impact in Major League Baseball. The first 2 guys that you probably think of are Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, but there’s a number of others like Matt Harvey, Yasiel Puig and Zoilo Almonte.

However, which of them can say that their first hit in the “Big Show” got stuck in a stadium’s scoreboard? Say hello to Tony Sanchez, a top prospect in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization who did exactly that this past Sunday against the Angels.

Call it random, call it odd, call it whatever you’d like – it still counts as the first hit of Tony Sanchez’ MLB career. By the way, a shocking note that I wasn’t aware of until I was writing this piece – the Pirates have a 46-30 record, putting them just 1 game behind the St. Louis Cardinals for the top spot in the NL Central. Pittsburgh hasn’t had a winning season since 1992, which was the last of 3 straight years losing in the National League Championship Series to end their seasons.
