Dawel Lugo was called up by the Detroit Tigers earlier in the year, but he never saw the field. He must have anticipated a similar result this time around, because the 23-year-old infielder wasted almost no time collecting the first hit of his MLB career on Thursday, the first game of his MLB career.
There are a lot of firsts here, so let’s just check out the video.
Congratulations, Dawel. Here’s hoping that’s the first of many more hits to come in a Tigers uniform.
