Adley Rutschman had cool moment during first career game
Baltimore Orioles top prospect Adley Rutschman made his Major League Baseball debut on Saturday, and the catcher did not take a second of it for granted.
Rutschman took the field with a big smile during the top of the first inning against the Tampa Bay Rays. He shook hands with umpire Andy Fletcher and then spun around to take in the scene at Camden Yards. Rutschman looked like he was fighting back emotions as he put on his helmet.

Rutschman seemed equally thrilled when he got the news from the Orioles that he was being called up. The team shared an awesome video showing the moment he was informed.
Rutschman, 24, is the top overall prospect in baseball. He should have a long career ahead of him.
