Watch: Rob Refsnyder hits first MLB home run over Green Monster
Refsnyder, ranked by MLB.com as the Yankees’ No. 5 prospect, made his major-league debut on Saturday and went 0 for 3.
Refsnyder is the first Yankees second baseman in over 100 years to hit a home run in one of his first two games.
Refsnyder’s home run ball was caught by a Yankee fan, who asked Refsnyder for a photo with he and four of his friends. The Yankees also gave him five signed baseballs, according to the YES Network’s Jack Curry.
