It was Opening Day yesterday and it didn't take long for Giancarlo Stanton to live up to all of his hype yesterday night. Wearing a New York Yankees uniform for the first time, Stanton cracked a home run into right field in his first at-bat of the season. But, that wasn't the beginning. The 2017 National League MVP who led all of baseball with 59 home runs for the Miami Marlins, left yesterday's game with two home-runs, four RBI's and went 3 for 4.
According to MLB.com Yankees relief pitcher Dellin Betances stated, "I've never seen a debut like that... those balls were hit out in less than two seconds, the guy just has massive pop."
After adding Stanton to an already impressive line up such as Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge, pitcher Luis Severino stated, "Thank God I don't have to face this lineup... we've got a lot of power hitters. I'm glad that Stanton, Judge and Gary are."
The New York Yankees went on to beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-1.
