Pittsburgh Pirates infielder Max Moroff received just two major-league at-bats last season. As a result, the up-and-comer had to wait until 2017 to hit his first big league home run.
That moment finally came on Sunday afternoon against the rival St. Louis Cardinals, as Moroff took ace Carlos Martinez deep to right field to officially get himself on the board. The memorable long ball also gave the Pirates a 2-1 lead in the bottom half of the fifth inning.
