Ready for some goosebumps?
On Friday evening, former Kentucky Baseball star Evan White made his MLB debut for the Seattle Mariners, recording his first-ever big league hit. Considering the circumstances, his family was not able to physically attend the historic moment in White’s life, but they still found a way to celebrate his accomplishment.
A teary-eyed White watches as his wife, brother, sister, and parents congratulate him on finally making to the MLB. Try not to weep too hard.

White was drafted back in the 2017 MLB Draft by the Mariners with the 17th overall pick and he recently signed a six-year, $24 million deal last November to stay in Seattle. During his time at Kentucky, he cemented himself as one of the program’s greatest all-time players.
In his debut, White went 1-for-4 at the plate in an 8-2 loss to the Houston Astros.
