Dustin Pedroia

He's making his major league debut right now. In the second inning, the Red Sox had the bases loaded with nobody out when Gabe Kapler struck out on a check swing, bringing up Pedroia for his first major league at bat. After taking ball one, he hit a pitch right on the screws... directly at Orlando Cabrera. He made a jumping catch (not really a leaping catch... that sounds more acrobatic and difficult - this was semi-routine) and easily doubled Mike Lowell off of second base.

Bases loaded, nobody out, zero runs. Welcome to Boston, Dustin.
