Giants first baseman Brett Pill just homered in his first big-league at-bat, on the second pitch he saw and on his first swing, against Padres left-hander Wade LeBlanc.
Pill, who turns 27 on Friday, lined an 0-1 pitch down the left-field line. The ball hit the facing of a balcony on the Western Metal Supply Company building.
According to baseballalmanac.com, Pill is the first Giant to homer in his first big-league at-bat since Will Clark, on April 8, 1986, against Nolan Ryan in the Astrodome.
I remember when Clark hit that homer. It was a 1-1 pitch.
