Video: Robert Refsnyder records first MLB hit and first MLB home run

This is why the Yankees called him up

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It took him six at bats, but former Arizona Wildcat outfielder Robert Refsnyder picked up his first career hit Sunday for the New York Yankees.

Then in his next at bat, Refsnyder went ahead and launched his first career home run, sending it over the Green Monster.

As a side note, Yankee radio guy John Sterling has catchphrases for each player's home runs, and this is apparently what he came up with for Refsnyder.

Ok then.

Congrats to Rob, and certainly there's more of these to come in his future at the Major League level.
