Stanton was promoted to the major leagues by the Florida Marlins on June 6, and he made his MLB debut on June 8th.
He surpassed Édgar Rentera (19 years, 276 days) and Miguel Cabrera (19 years, 212 days) to become the Marlins’ third-youngest player ever (20 years, 67 days).
During his first at-bat, Stanton went 3-for-5 with a pair of infield singles and two runs batted in.
Pitcher Matt Garza of the Tampa Bay Rays hit Stanton’s first MLB home run, a grand slam. Jeremy Hermida and Jeff Conine are the only other Marlins to hit their first home run with the bases loaded.
Stanton also became only the fourth player in the last 25 years to smash his first career grand slam before the age of 21, joining Jose Reyes, Andruw Jones, and Alex Rodriguez (1996).
With four RBI, two doubles, and a home run, Stanton smashed a 5-for-5 performance against the Washington Nationals on August 11, 2010.
As the second-youngest player to accomplish it since 1935, he amassed five hits and four RBI in a single game (Phil Cavarretta, who was 19 years and 33 days old with the Chicago Cubs on August 21, 1935).
On September 17, 1995, Gary Sheffield became only the second Marlin to get five hits and four RBI in the same game.
