The New York Yankees had a difficult weekend against the Toronto Blue Jays, dropping the series by losing two out of three games.
In their two losses, New York was held to just one run.
But in the second game of the series, the team’s top prospect, Anthony Volpe got to experience a moment he will never forget.
The young shortstop made the Yankees Opening Day roster out of spring training and earned the starting shortstop job.
On Saturday, Volpe got a chance to experience something major for the first time in his career.
The star shortstop went deep in the bottom of the eighth inning to get the Yankees on the board.
It was his second home run of the year and his first at Yankee Stadium
After he returned to the dugout, he gave fans a nice little curtain call.
On Monday, YES, the TV home of the Yankees posted a video of Volpe’s first career curtain call.
When dreams become reality.
