Rye native and Iona Prep grad Colin Moran, the Miami Marlins top draft pick, slammed a home run in his first professional at bat for the Greensboro (N.C.) Grasshoppers on Wednesday, which you can watch in the video above. Moran went 1 for 3 with the homer and a walk.
Moran’s older brother Brian, a left-hander reliever in the Seattle Mariners organization, pitched in the Triple-A all-star game last night, striking out two and allowing one hit in a scoreless inning of relief. Not a bad day for the Moran family…
Here is an interview with Colin prior to his debut.
And here is video of Colin taking infield and BP before the game.
