Young Fan Makes Chris Dominguez's First MLB Homer Even More Special


Giants rookie Chris Dominguez got his first MLB hit yesterday, a towering home run down the left field line in San Diego.

No player ever forgets his first hit, but Dominguez's was particularly special because of the young fan who caught the ball. Eight-year-old Estella was celebrating her birthday at the game and before Padres staff could retrieve the ball, Estella's sister had written a birthday message on it. Estella insisted on adding a congratulatory message of her own to the ball before it was returned to Dominguez.
