But the true highlight came after the game, where a photo was captured of an emotional embrace between Soto and his father.
This touching moment truly captures not only the innocence of 20-year-old Soto, but the emotion of baseball that allows it to connect generations.
The opportunity for Soto's dad to witness his son make history called for lots of celebration, and not just within the family.
It's quite a sight to see a player making history all while still being under the legal drinking age. Hopefully we get to see more magical moments like this as the postseason continues to remind us how truly special baseball is.
