Brian Horwitz is off to a pretty good start in the big leagues.
In his third Major League game, June 2, the San Francisco Giants’ rookie outfielder knocked off a two-run home run in his team’s blowout of the Mets. In his first eight at-bats, Horwitz is hitting .500 with three runs batted in and three runs scored.
“Unbelievable,” Horwitz has said of his Major League experience so far. “It’s extraordinary, surreal. It’s an out-of-body experience. I’m really enjoying being here. How could you complain? It’s great to be winning, as well.”
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the newest Jew in the Majors has already been dubbed “the Rabbi” by his teammates.
