Colorado Rockies youngster Yonathan Daza belted the first homer of his career and it came in the snow against the Houston Astros.
Could Yonathan Daza have dreamed of a better first home run of his MLB days? Probably not. In a 6-2 win for the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, Daza indeed went yard for the first time in the bigs. What could have possibly made it better?
Well, not only was the snow falling at Coors Field, but his dinger came against one of the most hated teams in all of sports: the Houston Astros. Yup, this is a moment that Daza is going to be telling his grandchildren about.
Yonathan Daza’s first career home run truly could not have been more perfect
Somebody find that baseball for the young man and make sure he doesn’t leave the stadium without it. It’s a homer he’ll remember for the rest of his life. On top of that, how amazing is the video of the dinger?
While we may be in the heart of spring, Denver never disappoints with some snowstorms in April. Such was the case for the Astros-Rockies tilt, which only made the video of Daza’s smash that more impressive. It’s something you’d see in a movie.
On the season, Daza has impressed thus far this season. He entered Wednesday’s game having posted eight hits in 24 at-bats. He’s also stellar defensively, with Daza known for making strong plays from his center field spot. He’ll look to keep making exciting plays for Colorado, as he certainly got a big monkey off his bat with recording home run No. 1. Now, we’ll see what else Daza and Colorado will be able to get done this season.
