All smiles for Colin Curtis’s first hit

Colin Curtis went unmentioned in my game recap because I felt he deserved a separate post. Yet another Yankee made his debut Monday, and it only took two at-bats for another ball to get thrown into the dugout for safe keeping. 

In Curtis’s second at-bat, first last night, he cranked a two-run double over the center fielder’s head. Yes, his parents and brother were in attendance. Yes, Curtis’s face was lit up like the fourth of July. Yes, it was an awesome moment to watch. And yes, I’m glad I stayed up for it.

He tipped his cap to his parents on his way back to the dugout, where he seemed very comfortable with the rest of the Yankees. He chatted it up with Phil Hughes, as the two played with each other for two different minor league teams in 2007.

Curtis was called up Monday, taking the place of Chad Moeller. Curtis flied out to center in his first chance on Monday.
