Opening day is a big deal for baseball fans and players, but it’s especially memorable when you are making your debut. Yeah, playing in your debut game is exciting enough, but having the performance that Colorado Rockies rookie Trevor Story had in his first game is almost unfathomable.
Trevor Story didn’t reach base on his first at bat, but he hit a three run home run to right field in the third. An inning later, the rookie hit a solo shot to left.
Story was a first round draft pick in the 2011 MLB Draft. He transitioned to Triple-A Baseball in 2015, and after Spring Training in 2016 he was able to not only secure a spot on the roster, but he also won the starting shortstop job.
The Colorado Rockies defeated the Diamondbacks by a final score of 10-5.
