Matt Holliday is Back Where it All Began

Sports

Matt Holliday, the man that spent his first five seasons of his 15 year career with the Colorado Rockies, helped them win a World Series in 2007, and now he is back where it all began.

The 38 year old slugger was called up to play against the San Diego Padres. He batted fifth in the lineup, played left field, and wore number seven but ended the day 0-3, with a couple of flyouts.

The seven time all-star was in the minors for 16 games before making his return to the majors. He played one game with the Grand Junction Rockies and went 1-3 with a RBI and a double.

He then moved up to AAA with the Albuquerque Isotopes and smacked three homeruns and had a batting average of .346.

The Rockies went on to beat the Padres, due to a Ian Desmond walk-off 2-run homerun and are still one game behind the Arizona Diamondbacks for first in the N-L West.
