Tigers pitcher Daniel Norris went dead center off Jon Lester in his first career at-bat Wednesday

That wasn’t just the first major league plate appearance for Norris. It was his first place appearance at any level of professional baseball. Lester had allowed just three home runs to left-handers all year. Crazy.

Norris, 22, was acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays in last month’s David Price trade.
