Mike Stanton, a top outfield prospect, made his Major League debut this week with the Marlins.
Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that Stanton went 3-for-5 with three singles “and looked like he belongs in the big leagues.”
The team saved the ball from his first hit and “I’ll give it to my dad and send it home,” Stanton told Frisaro. “He can do what he wants with it.”
He played for the Greensboro Grasshoppers when I took this photo.
