The family of St Louis Cardinals’ top prospect Dylan Carlson had a heartwarming reaction to the outfielder’s first hit of his Major League Baseball career.
Carlson, 21, made his debut for the Cardinals in a double-header against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, August 15.
According to reports, Carlson hit a double into the right field on the eighth pitch of his at-bat in the fifth inning of Game 2.
Unfortunately for Carlson, his family were unable to attend the game due to coronavirus-related restrictions.
