Welcome to the Big Leagues

He may not be able to find his way out of a cardboard box, but he can certainly pitch out of one.
Daryl Thompson was so pumped to make his major league debut on Saturday, he forgot to get directions to Yankee Stadium.

Seriously. The kid hopped on the subway and ended up in Brooklyn, making himself late to his own first day. But once he arrived, Thompson wasted little time in making a good first impression. The 22-year-old Cincinnati Reds right-hander let the leadoff hitter on in each of his first four innings, with a two-out walk in the fifth, but narrowly escaped trouble every time.

Thompson ended up allowing just four hits with two strikeouts, walking four over five shutout innings in his first big league outing, resulting in a 6-0 Reds victory. He may not be able to find his way out of a cardboard box, but he can certainly pitch out of one.
