Less than 24 hours after starting in right field at Citizens Bank Park, Domonic Brown found himself in Lehigh Valley surrounded by the hijinx and high pants that go along with minor league baseball.
The 23-year old returned to the IronPigs as a result of the big club’s acquisition of Hunter Pence. Instead of right, Brown patrolled left field at Coca-Cola Park on Saturday night and wasted no time getting busy as Buffalo’s leadoff hitter blooped a single in front of Brown.
As Brown stepped into the box for his first at-bat in the bottom of the first inning, a picture of the 23-year old donning a cowboy hat in front of a western background, part of the team’s Monkey Rodeo Night.
With his white pant legs pulled high placing an emphasis on his navy socks, Brown worked a five-pitch walk to load the bases with one out. Left fielder Delwyn Young then ended the inning as he grounded into a double play.
