WATCH: Calgary's Mike Soroka Wins His MLB Debut!
So last night, the opportunity of a lifetime for a twenty year old kid from Calgary, Alberta. His name is Mike Soroka, and made his Major League Baseball debut for the Atlanta Braves!
And how'd that go? Pretty well, thanks.
It gets better. Mike got to do it with family and friends in attendance.
Mike Soroka called his father, Gary, to let him know the call-up was a possibility on Saturday. @PaulByrd36 caught up with family and friends during the highly anticipated MLB debut. pic.twitter.com/UVFJzsYAfm— FOX Sports: Braves (@FOXSportsBraves) May 2, 2018

Atta boy, Mike. What a story. It'll be cool to keep an eye on this kid!
