Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson hit his first career grand slam on Thursday, and fans loved every second of it.
Hitting a grand slam is rare in MLB, but when it happens, the scoring team is always excited. It’s an even bigger affair when a player makes his first Grand Slam of his career. Atlanta Braves shortstop Dansby Swanson didn’t experience the euphoria that comes with hitting a grand slam until Thursday.
Against the Philadelphia Phillies in a game that had to be won to qualify for the playoffs, Swanson scored his first grand slam of his career, and Atlanta fans couldn’t get enough.
Braves fans celebrate Dansby Swanson’s first grand slam on social media
To put into perspective how hard it is to hit a grand slam, Dansby Swanson is in his sixth MLB season and has had 2,422 at bats in that time. It took him until Thursday to send his first grand slam from the margins. It seems that Braves fans were waiting for that moment too, as they showered the shortstop with praise after taking his first grand slam.
Dansby’s first grand slam gave the Brave a 4-0 lead over the Phillies, and it also calmed some haters in the process. Hopefully this career achievement is a boost for Swanson, who has struggled out of the gate since the All-Star hiatus.
