When I think back through the baseball games I've attended in person, one of the greatest experiences I've ever had at a game was on May 27, 2008 when the Reds took on the Pirates. Jay Bruce was called up at the age of 21 to make his MLB debut against Pittsburgh, and I had the pleasure of being there. The atmosphere was magical. For two teams that were under .500, the crowd mentality was similar to playoff atmosphere, thanks to the electric play of Bruce who came up and went 3 for 3 with 2 walks. You just knew every time this kid came to the plate, something exciting was going to happen. I left the ballpark that day thinking I had just seen the arrival of the greatest player to ever play the game. A guy that no opposing pitcher could get out. The first man to hit 1.000. I know it wasn't realistic, but that one game restored my faith as a fan of the Cincinnati Reds that the future of the team was brighter that what we had become so accustomed to.
Anyway, who had the best debut in the Major Leagues that you can remember?
