Indians catcher Carlos Santana was called up to the big leagues Friday and launched his first career home run on Saturday.
To round out the debut weekend, Santana got his first taste of a “Welcome to the MLB!” moment Sunday when he stepped in the way of Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn as the big man tried to cross home plate. It has produced one of the greatest GIF files that these eyes have ever seen. Seriously, that link must be clicked.
Dunn, who checks in at 6-foot-6 and 287 pounds, absolutely flattened the 24-year-old catcher, who is listed at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds. Rookie!
