Jake Burger’s first big league hit is impossibly fitting originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

In his third at-bat of the night, and the third of his major league career, Jake Burger popped one up high into right field, and what looked to be an insignificant speck of a play turned out to be one that Burger will never forget.

The moment was almost as impossible as Burger’s journey to the big leagues was itself.

It wasn't a glamorous hit, but it was a base-hit nonetheless. And hopefully the start of a long and healthy career.
