Carlos Correa Debuts in MLB, Gets a Unique First Hit

Carlos Correa, initially called out on a grounder, ends up with infield single after replay challenge.

In one of the most anticipated debuts of the season, Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa did something nobody else has probably ever done. In his second at bat, he grounded a ball to the shortstop and sprinted towards first base. On a bang-bang play, he was called out, prompting outrage from him and his friends and family visibly yelling from the stands.

 

After reviewing the play, the umpires reversed the decision and gave him an infield hit, which also brought in a run as a result of the play. So, Correa’s first Major League hit came about an official review, which was implemented in 2008 and further revised before last season. Correa ended the day 1-4, which is a respectable mark considering he faced lefty ace Chris Sale of the White Sox.


Look below for Correa's first hit (of many hopefully):
