A’s catcher Stephen Vogt overjoyed after hitting home run in his final MLB at-bat

Steven Vogt announced in September that he retired from baseball after 10 MLB seasons.

On Wednesday, the Oakland A catcher came out in style. Before the record’s first appearance in his last MLB game, Vogt was introduced at home by his three children.

Look at his smile when he hears his children on the speakerphone.

He ended the day with another at-bat to remember. The first seventh-inning offer from Angels pitcher Zack Weiss was a 94 mph fastball over the heart of the plate. Vogt swung hard and caught it all, throwing the ball over the right field wall for a solo home run.

Again, look at his reaction. It’s pure joy, more suited to a Little League player than a 37-year-old 10-season MLB veteran.

He did not appear on the plate again. The explosion in the seventh inning proved to be the last of his MLB career. It was also the difference in a 3-2 win for the A’s.

It was a fitting occasion for Vogt, whose first MLB success also came with a home run almost in the same part of the stadium.

Vogt was named to two All-Star teams and won the World Series last season with the Atlanta Braves. Judging by Vogt’s expression, Wednesday is considered the best moment of his career.
