What an entrance! Wander arrives in style

No. 1 prospect takes trip to ballpark in Rolls Royce for first game

June 23rd, 2021

Get ready, Rays fans -- Wander Franco is in the building.

The No. 1 prospect in baseball arrived at Tropicana Field for his highly anticipated big league debut, pulling up to The Trop in a white Rolls Royce on Tuesday afternoon before Tampa Bay's series opener against the Red Sox.

Franco started Tuesday's game at third base and batted second, going 2-for-4 with a clutch three-run home run while playing some stellar defense at the hot corner.

The 20-year-old infielder -- nicknamed "El PatrĆ³n," or "The Boss" -- was called up after batting .315 with seven home runs, five stolen bases and 35 RBIs in 39 games for Triple-A Durham this season.
