Pittsburgh’s Starling Marte first at bat. First pitch. First home run. Welcome to the big leagues.

On the first swing of his major league career, Pittsburgh’s Starling Marte homered tonight to deep left-center field in Houston. He became the first Pirate in 51 years to homer in his first at-bat, as well as the 28th player in MLB history to homer on his first pitch. That ranks just behind perfect games (22), four-HR games (16), and unassisted triple plays (15) in terms of historical rarity.
