Marcus Thames stepped up to a major league plate for the first time in this game as an Arizona Diamondback. On the mound for the Yanks was the former D-back, Randy Johnson, who like so many supserstars, came to New York to collect an inane sum of money in exchange for marketable name recognition, if not a waning skill set. The Big Unit could still hurl 100mph, however.
So Marcus Thames comes to bat, his first ever major league at bat, and hits a dinger, a four bagger, a round-tripper --a home run-- off the Randy Johnson.
