Hurston Waldrep makes MLB debut

Jun. 10—THOMASVILLE — Former Thomasville Bulldogs and Thomasville native Hurston Waldrep made his Major League Baseball debut for the Atlanta Braves on Sunday afternoon. After a short rain delay, Waldrep got the start for the Atlanta Braves in Washington, DC against the Nationals.

Waldrep got his day started off right with a first pitch ground out for the Nats' leadoff hitter CJ Abrams. He then walked Lane Thomas before forcing a pop out before Thomas was caught stealing to end the innings.

A milestone moment came in the bottom of the second as Waldrep faced former Brave Eddie Rosario to start the inning.
