danielBoston, June 13, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The Saturday Major league Baseball game between the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies turned out to be a historical one as 27-year-old debut player of the Boston Red Sox, Daniel Nava went to hit a grand slam in the first pitch that he received from Joe Blanton of the Philadelphia Red Sox.

On Saturday when he took the position to bat in the second innings, the Boston Red Sox were trailing by 2-1. At his first-at-bat he received a fastball from Joe Blanton, but he confidently blasted the ball into the Boston Red Sox’s bullpen in the right-center field.

It was a clear shot that went for a grand slam making Daniel Nava the second player to be able to hit a grand slam on the first major league career pitch. It only took Daniel Nava to round the second base to realize the feat he has achieved.

After the game got over, Daniel Nava said that he tried to treat his Major League baseball debut game as any other games that he has played.

The Boston Red Sox team manager Terry Francona mentioned that Daniel Nava has been striking well in all those places he had played adding at the same time that many in the player development board have been talking about Daniel Nava for sometime.
