Nationals’ Joey Meneses homered in his first MLB game after spending 10 years in the minors


This home run for Joey Meneses was a decade in the making.

On Tuesday, the Washington Nationals were playing their first game in the post-Juan Soto era as the MLB trade deadline came to a close. While Nationals fans were still reeling from the loss of Soto, they were given quite the heartwarming story to cheer about.

After 10 years of playing in the minors, 30-year-old Meneses finally got called up for his first MLB game on Tuesday to make his debut with the Nationals. And for his first-ever career hit, Meneses went yard in the bottom of the seventh for a solo home run!

First game. First hit. First homer.
