Orlando Arcia #3
Milwaukee Brewers rookie shortstop Orlando Arcia made his Major League Baseball debut against the San Diego Padres in Petco Park, nine years after teammate Ryan Braun, who made a terrific catch in the game, had made his MLB debut in the same stadium. In the 3-2 Brewers win, Arcia made a few routine plays in the field along with one heads up play in the very first inning to nab a runner at third base. Although Arcia went 0-4 at the plate, he'll provide plenty of excitement both offensively and defensively for many years to come.
QUOTE: "There's a ton of adrenaline, a ton of emotion, a lot of thoughts that are running through your head. Hey, it's even exciting for all of us to see a guy with his potential show up, Braun said.
FACT: Arcia's MLB debut was two days before his 22nd birthday.
