Mets’ Brett Baty went deep in his first major league at-bat

ATLANTA — Brett Baty’s first major league at-bat was one for the Mets history books.

The rookie third baseman hit a home run over the right field fence at Truist Park against the Braves’ Jake Odorizzi in the second inning Wednesday. He is the fifth player in Mets history to homer in his first major league at-bat.

Mike Jacobs (2005) was the most recent Met to homer in his first major league at-bat.

Baty, 22, was selected from Triple-A Syracuse before the game after Edurado Escobar was placed on the injured list with a left oblique strain.
