It was quite a debut week for Arizona Diamondbacks rookie slugger Paul Goldschmidt. The 23 year old first baseman got a hit in his first big league at-bat and then hit his first major league Home Run the following night off none other than San Francisco Giants former Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum. Goldschmidt had 30 Home Runs and 94 RBI’s for the Double-A Mobile Bay Bears before getting the call to join the Diamondbacks. In the story, Goldschmidt talks about his debut, his approach at the plate, and his road through the minor leagues.
