MACEDONIAN IN BASEBALL
Recently we were posting about Macedonians on ice but we also have some Macedonians playing Baseball.
Kevin Kuzmanov is one of them, He is the only Macedonian playing in the Major league and he does very well.
Kevin Kuzmanov was born in Newport Beach, California and grew up in Evergreen Colorado where he played high school baseball. He made his professional debut later in 2003 with the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, hitting .272 with eight home runs and 33 runs batted in 206 at bats. Currently Kevin is playing for the Cleveland Indians.
On September 2 this year, Kuzmanov hit a grand slam home run on the first pitch of his first Major League at bat. He made history and became the first to hit a grand slam on his first pitch and only the third player in his first at bat.
