Parker Meadows' walk-off home run is an instant classic
Detroit Tigers outfielder Parker Meadows has officially arrived, as he sent Comerica Park into a frenzy tonight with his first career home run, a walk-off three-run shot to right field that enabled the Tigers to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
Meadows was recently promoted by the Detroit Tigers
Meadows, who was a Tigers second-round pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, was recently called up by the team to make his Major League debut. During tonight's game, he'd already made a highlight reel catch in center field, taking away what would have been a home run for the visiting Houston Astros.
He'll forever remember his 1st home run
After a single from Miguel Cabrera and an RBI double from Javier Baez, it was Meadows who stepped up to the plate and played the role of hero with his 1st career home run, walking it off for the Tigers and becoming just the 8th player in team history to hit their first long ball in the walk-off variety.
And as you can see, his teammates as well as the crowd at Comerica Park were absolutely thrilled for him.
