San Francisco Giants rookie catcher Andrew Susac has had a season filled with firsts after being called up to the Giants major league roster.
The most interesting achievement in his career may wind up being his first hit. Susec’s first hit came in a May 22nd game between the Giants and Rockies, which took place roughly two months before his major league debut. Wait huh?
Bleacher Report explains the confusing situation.
On May 22, the game between the Giants and the Colorado Rockies was suspended with the score tied 2-2 in the bottom of the sixth inning. The game was resumed Monday, with Susac now a member of the team.
The catcher entered the game when it resumed. Although Susac had already appeared in 17 games, this appearance will technically go down as his major league debut.
To make things a bit more complicated, he singled in the eighth inning of the suspended game this week.
So while Susac’s first career hit came on July 30th against the Pittsburgh Pirates, his single in the finish of May’s delayed game could technically be his first career hit. I know, it’s still confusing.
