Pittsburgh Pirates’ Trevor Williams Recorded His First MLB Win And His Post-Game Embrace With His Father Was Spectacular
24-year-old Pirates prospect Trevor Williams was called up to the bigs on Tuesday and the next day, the right-hander recorded his very first MLB win. He pitched three innings, allowed one unearned run, and struck out three in the 4-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Williams, who was selected by the Marlins in the 2012 MLB Draft, shared an emotional embrace with his wife Jackie, 11-month-old son Isaac, and father, Richard.
His dad was beaming with pride.
Williams spoke on the moment in the locker room after the game.
Hey dad. Dad. Look. My Shot. It went in. Dad. Hug me.
Ah. Fuck it.
