Julio Rodriguez’s dad sheds tears after son makes roster for Mariners Opening Day

Mariners star contender Julio Rodriguez was on the list for Mariners’ Opening Day and immediately called his parents to celebrate, bringing tears of joy from his father.

Most parents want their children to achieve their dreams. Making it to the top leagues was Julio Rodriguez’s dream.

On Monday, that dream became a reality when the Mariners announced their top prospect that he had been added to the opening-day roster.

Overwhelming joy at the news was written all over Julio Rodriguez Sr.’s face when he received his son’s call.

“The most important call of my life came in at 10:50 a.m. today… ‘Daddy, I did it’… I was overcome with emotion and I really broke down,” the elder Rodriguez said. after Hector Gomez. “Thanks to God for making this dream possible”…

The Mariners posted a video of Rodriguez’s reaction to the news.

He also shared some details of the call he had with his parents on The Mike Sal Show in Seattle.

Rodriguez is the No. 3 pick in MLB this year. He has been with the Mariners organization since he was 16 years old.

He played in AA with Arkansas for most of last season, hitting seven home runs while hitting .362/.461/.546. He also spent time with Everett at A+ hitting .325/.410/.581.

He had a chance to impress in spring training this year, although given the shortened timeline there was no guarantee he would make the opening day list. Of course, Rodriguez didn’t need an extension to convince the team that he’s doing them better now.
