Rob Refsnyder

How cool is this?
It’s a dream for any American kid who ever fantasized of playing in Major League Baseball.
Korean American Rob Refsnyder hit a two run homer in the 9th inning for the New York Yankees in only his second game.

The home run came against the rival Boston Red Sox in what proved to be the winning runs in an 8-6 victory.
It was just his second major league hit after being called up Friday night from the Yankee AAA team.
His home run sailed over the historic green monster in Fenway Park.
According to the Korea Times, the second baseman was adopted from Korea. His birth name is Kim Jung-tae. He graduated from the University of Arizona and was drafted in the fifth round of the 2012 draft.
