Jun 10, 2011 – It’s the season of top prospect call-ups, and Thursday the San Diego Padres made their move, promoting first baseman Anthony Rizzo
from triple-A Tucson and putting him in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals. Rizzo was to make his Major League debut in front of the home crowd, and I don’t know if you’ll believe me, but people were actually excited. Padres fans were excited about something about the Padres. For real, I got a text message and everything.
