There's Nothing Quite Like a Walk-Off Homer for Your Very First Time
Well, Anthony Alford won't be forgetting this night anytime soon.
Of course, this is very likely the first time you've heard the name of this 24-year-old Toronto Blue Jays outfielder, but no matter.
After cups of coffee in both 2017 and 2018, Alford's up with the big club yet again.
But this time he's making it count.
With the Baltimore Orioles in town, the Blue Jays correctly assumed they would be scoring a whole bunch of runs.
However, so did the Birds, leaving the game tied up at 10 apiece in the bottom of the 15th.
That's when Alford popped his homer cherry in public:
And in Canada, no less.
Yeah, you wouldn't know her.
So dude got his first homer and first walk-off out of the way with one awkward-yet-tender swing of the bat.
Alford owes a massive debt of gratitude to the Orioles pitching staff for just doing what comes natural, which in this case is giving up an historic number of homers.
And those were just against the Yankees.
