The wait is over for Seattle Mariners fans waiting to see Julio Rodriguez go yard. That's because on Sunday in a matchup with the Miami Marlins, the rookie sent a ball for a ride.
Yup, J-Rod recorded homer No. 1 of his career and it was an absolute banger. This ball was a no-doubter from the moment he made contact.
That's a sweet moment for the youngster and one he'll never forget. Neither will Seattle Mariners fans, as they know this kid has quite the future ahead of him. That's dinger No. 1 for the talented outfielder. Plenty more are on the way.
