In a recent baseball game, 3 Oakland Athletic rookies hit a home run in their first-ever major league game. To show how rare this is, you have to go back to April of 1914 to find when it had been done before.
The 3 rookies who accomplished this feat for the A’s were Matt Olson, Jaycob Brugman, and Franklin Barreto. This led the A’s to a 10-2 win. Oakland has traded almost all of their older players to contending teams in the last month. Nice to see these young players get a chance.
