The ScoreHolliday: Orioles debut 'all I could have asked for'

Baseball's top prospect Jackson Holliday made his major-league debut for the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday, and while his first game didn't go well from a stats perspective, the 20-year-old was thrilled with the experience."It's all I could have asked for," Holliday said, according to The Athletic's Stephen J. Nesbitt. "Playing in the big leagues. A stadium full of fans. Two really good teams. I can't ask for more - except for maybe like four hits."Holliday went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts and an RBI groundout during Baltimore's 7-5 win over the Boston Red Sox. The youngster, who started at second base, also failed to make a basket catch with his back to the infield but did turn a smooth double play in the second inning with fellow budding star Gunnar Henderson.Holliday admitted to getting around three hours of sleep after learning of his call-up and was mostly running on adrenaline prior to his debut, which was attended by his father, former big-leaguer Matt Holliday."It's been quite the day," Jackson said, "but I wouldn't change it for anything."The Orioles play the Red Sox on Thursday at Fenway Park before returning home to Camden Yards for a weekend series with the Milwaukee Brewers. The first 15,000 fans aged 15 and over to enter the ballpark before Friday's game will receive a Holliday debut T-shirt. Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved.

The ScoreHenderson: New Orioles owner has 'same mindset' as players to win title

Baltimore Orioles shortstop and reigning AL Rookie of the Year Gunnar Henderson is happy to see that new team owner David Rubenstein is motivated to win a championship."Obviously, we want the leadership to be wanting the World Series as much as we do, and I feel like he's got the same mindset," Henderson said Tuesday after meeting Rubenstein, according to Jake Rill of owners unanimously approved the sale of the Orioles on Wednesday to a group led by Rubenstein for $1.725 billion. The vote was the last step in finalizing the transaction between the new ownership group and the Angelos family.All-Star outfielder Austin Hays echoed a similar excitement as Henderson about the ownership change."I think he has the best interests at heart, that's why he purchased the team," Hays added, according to Danielle Allentuck of the Baltimore Banner. "He's Baltimore through and through. Having a man like that be in charge of all of us, I'm looking forward to seeing how he runs this team because he has a really good track record."Baltimore enters the 2024 campaign as a legit World Series threat after winning the AL East last year with 101 victories. The club added ace Corbin Burnes in the offseason and owns arguably the best farm system in baseball, which includes No. 1 prospect Jackson Holliday, who's expected to make his major-league debut this season.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc.
