Christopher Morel was on the Double-A Tennessee Smokies earlier this week when he got the call up to play for the Chicago Cubs. Morel didn’t waste the opportunity and made the most of his MLB debut.

Chicago was up 6-0 in the eighth inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates when Cubs manager David Ross gave Morel the chance at his first major league at-bat as a pinch hitter for third baseman Patrick Wisdom. With a full count, Morel blasted a 417-foot home run to left field and was so excited that he almost forgot to touch first base.
