​Spring Training provides the opportunity for a first for everything. 

Even the seasoned players. 

Eric Hosmer, who recently ​signed with the San Diego Padres in free agency, is known to be able to ​hit the long-ball, and that is what he just did. 

Check out Hosmer's first dinger in a Padres uniform. 

Man, it probably felt great to get that out of the way quickly. He gave the fans a little oppo-taco action too. 

The slugging first-baseman is going to add some much needed offensive production to the Padres lineup. He will also add defensive prowess as he brings over four gold glove awards. 

Padres fans can also bet on his durability. He has missed just eight games in the past three seasons combined. 

As the new face of the franchise, Hosmer has some big expectations to live up to. 

The good news is, he looks more than ready for it.
