Joey Gallo’s Texas Rangers debut: June 2, 2015
Gallo was initially called up to replace an injured veteran in the lineup, the fan-favorite and long time Arlington fixture Adrian Beltre.
Gallo gave fans exactly what they were looking for in his debut, as he went three-for-four at the plate with a double and a towering 444 foot home run while racking up four runs batted in.
Since debuting at third base, the six-foot-five slugger has moved around the diamond, having played both corner positions and more recently, some outfield.
To that point, Gallo has established himself as one of the top right fielders in baseball.
Oh, and the home runs haven’t slowed down or become any less majestic, either. He’s hit 120 of them in 473 career games.
I think it’s safe to say Gallo has been a major success at the big league level since making his debut.
