New York Yankees prospect Rob Refsnyder recorded both his first career hit and first MLB home run in Sunday’s game against the Boston Red Sox.
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.
