Y’all. Collin McHugh just rode in on the bullpen cart. pic.twitter.com/nbT6e2mIEQ

I know we got to see the Diamondbacks break out the bullpen cart during a spring training game back in March, but it just wasn’t the same when the games don’t count. I figured once the season started, we wouldn’t be waiting too long before some lazy ass reliever took a ride on this thing from the bullpen.
But nope. We had to wait 33 games before someone had the balls to take a ride on this thing. 33! Collin McHugh was the relief pitcher that finally broke the dry spell. Thanks to him we got to see a bullpen cart in action in a regular season game for the first time in 22 long years.

History was made in Arizona last night. We had to wait over a month into the season to finally see this thing brought out, so thanks to Collin McHugh, even if this is literally the least intimidating way to enter a baseball game. He’s an American hero.
Now that the seal is broken, I fully expect to see this on the regular now. Just needed that first guy to make the move.
It was my honor. But if you could take me all the way to the hill next time that would be great. Thx! https://t.co/GBUYKLwV8v
