Atlanta Braves catcher Evan Gattis made his Major League debut on Wednesday night. He also hit his first Major League homer while his dad was being interviewed.

How cool is this? Man, you talk about a great moment. Evan Gattis made his Major League debut on Wednesday night. While his father was being interviewed, Gattis hit the first home run of his Major League career off of Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies. That’s awesome.

Gattis struggled with drug abuse earlier in life. After a long road, he made his first appearance in the big leagues at the age of 25. It took Gattis a little longer to make it to the big leagues, but he sure arrived in style once he got there.

This is a moment that Evan Gattis and his family can relive over and over again throughout the years. It’s going to be pretty cool for Evan to pop in a tape years down the road and see his father being interviewed as he hits his first career homer off of Roy Halladay. That’s awesome. The Braves went on to clobber the Phillies 9-2.
