Tyler Heineman Newsbeat

One brother hit his first MLB homer. The other got called up. On the same exact day

And now, something from the lighter side of sports.

NEW YORK — Talk about an unforgettable day for the Heineman family.

Texas Rangers outfielder Scott Heineman hit his first career major-league home run on Tuesday at Yankee Stadium — the same exact day his brother, Tyler, earned his first career major-league call-up from the Miami Marlins.

“It was pretty special,” Scott said after the Rangers lost 10-1 to the New York Yankees. “And it was funny, going into the at-bat ‘Rougie’ [Rougned Odor] was all over me. He’s like, ‘You beat your brother to the big leagues, but are you going to beat him to a home run? Don’t let him beat you.’ So it was cool to get it out of the way.”

Scott’s parents, Steve and Kathy, both grew up in New York. Steve was a Mets fan, though he did take his sons to old Yankee Stadium.
