J.P. Arencibia's Major League Debut


Called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Wednesday, J.P. Arencibia homered on the first pitch of his first at-bat, a two-run shot to left in the second. He added another first-pitch homer in the sixth, and finished with four hits.

Arencibia is the first player in the modern era with four hits and two homers in his major league debut.  He's also the first Blue Jays player to homer in his first career at-bat since Junior Felix did the trick on May 4, 1989, against the California Angels.

J.P. Arencibia belongs in the hall of fame.
