When a player makes his Major League debut, it always makes for a memorable day in his life.
When he picks up his first Major League hit, it makes it even more special.
And when that hit is a big two-run homer over the Green Monster at Fenway Park, it’s a night worth celebrating.
Top prospect Vaughn Grissom made his debut for the Atlanta Braves in game two of their series against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Wednesday night and hit one over the Green Monster for his first Major League home run.
The highlight is featured in the tweet below.

A Night To Remember
That’s one way to start off your Major League career.
Grissom did it in style.
The Green Monster out in left field is one of the most difficult hurdles a hitter runs into when playing at Fenway Park.
Sometimes, no matter how hard or high you hit it, it’s going to bounce off the wall and end up resulting in just a single.
But Grissom managed to clear the wall out in left and create a moment that he’ll never forget.
That’s one of the better ways a guy can pick up their first Major League hit, going all the way over the Green Monster.
The Braves won last night’s game by a final of 8-4 and managed to take the series from the Red Sox, but the story of the game was Grissom’s debut.
He got to make his debut in one of baseball’s most historic stadiums, and in addition to that, hit one over the Monster for his first career home run and hit.
It’s hard to draw it up any better for Grissom.
