Detroit’s Baddoo homers on first pitch of first MLB at-bat

DETROIT (AP) – Tiger’s outfielder Akil Baddoo made his first place in his big league.

Baddoo led on the third Sunday of the inning with a drive to left field ahead of Cleveland’s Aaron Civale. This game was the 22-year-old Baddoo’s first appearance over Class A.

Baddoo was designed by the Minnesota Twins in 2016, and the Tigers took it with them in the third selection of the 2020 Winter Meeting design for unprotected players. He has had a great spring training session in which he hit .325 with five home runs in 21 games.
