Brett Baty, the third baseman for the New York Mets, couldn't have been any better. In the Mets 9-7 win over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, the 22-year-old hit a two-run homer in his first Major League at-bat against the Atlanta Braves. In his first big league at-bat, Baty stepped up to the plate and belted a ball over the right foot wall to propel home teammate Mark Canha, giving the Mets a 4-0 lead at the time. Baty's mother, father, sister, and other relatives who stayed late for the occasion lost their seats at Truist Parkin.
