Like many ballplayers, Washington Nationals pitcher Tom Milone has been dreaming about his MLB debut all his life. He has probably imagined it time and time again on how that first night on a big league mound might play out. He probably never imagined it would be like it has been on Saturday night. His first big league batter, Jose Reyes, he got out. His first two innings in the Majors, he gave up no hits. His first swing of the bat in the Majors-- a three-run home run into the Nationals bullpen.
You just can't make this stuff up. The Nationals bullpen, the dugout, all of Nationals Park go into a complete frenzy.
New York Mets pitcher (now trivia question) Dillon Gee served up a first pitch 90 mph fastball to Milone who absolutely obliterated it into the Nats bullpen to help the Nationals take a 5-0 lead over the Mets. The team forced Milone to make a curtain call and the fans at Nationals Park gave him a standing ovation. This is the stuff dreams are made of.
